In reversal, Seoul to keep Japan military intelligence pact   

SEOUL (AP) — In a major policy reversal, South Korea said on Nov. 22 it has decided to continue, at least temporarily, a 2016 military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan that it previously said in August it would terminate amid ongoing tensions over wartime history and trade.

The announcement, made just six hours before the agreement was to expire, followed a strong U.S. push to save the pact, which has been a major symbol of the countries' three-way security cooperation in the face of North Korea's nuclear threat and China's growing influence.

The office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in said it decided to continue the General Security of Military Information Agreement after Tokyo agreed to reopen talks on settling their trade dispute.

Kim You-geun, deputy director of South Korea's presidential national security office, said the move was based on the premise that it could end the arrangement at any time, tying it to the outcome of future negotiations with Japan.

South Korea also decided to halt a complaint it filed with the World Trade Organization over Japan's tightened controls on exports of key chemicals.
