S. Korea cancels Japan intelligence deal   

SEOUL (AP) — South Korea announced on Aug. 22 the termination of an intelligence-sharing deal with Japan that focused on classified information about North Korea, an announcement that is likely to set back U.S. efforts to bolster security cooperation with two of its important allies.

South Korea attributed the decision to its bitter trade dispute with Japan.

The United States expressed disappointment in the decision, and it is urging Japan and South Korea to continue talking.

South Korea's presidential office said Japan's decision to downgrade the country's trade status caused a "grave" change in security cooperation between the two nations.

Japanese Foreign Minister Kono Taro said South Korea's linking of trade and security was "absolutely unacceptable."

Since July, Japan has imposed stricter controls on exports to South Korea of three chemicals essential for manufacturing semiconductors and display screens, and decided to remove South Korea from a list of countries granted preferential trade status. Japan's downgrading of South Korea's trade status took effect on Aug. 28.
