Tokyo, Seoul to Discuss Export Controls under WTO Rules Fri.

Tokyo, Seoul to Discuss Export Controls under WTO Rules Fri.

   Tokyo, Oct. 10 (Jiji Press)--Tokyo and Seoul will hold bilateral talks on stricter Japanese export controls in Geneva on Friday under the World Trade Organization's dispute settlement procedures, Japan's trade ministry said Thursday.
   Japan plans to say that the review of its export control system is consistent with the WTO rules, the ministry said. South Korea requested such discussions.
   In July, Japan tightened its controls on exports of three semiconductor materials to South Korea, citing security concerns related to the country's trade control system.
   South Korea filed a complaint with the WTO in September, claiming that Japan took the measure for political reasons amid rows over wartime labor and other bilateral issues.
   Japan and South Korea are unlikely to reach a settlement through the bilateral talks, given the wide gap between the two countries.
