South Korea notifies Japan of scrapping of intelligence pact

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s foreign ministry said on Friday it has officially notified Japan of its decision to end an intelligence-sharing agreement.

South Korea said on Thursday it was scrapping the intelligence-sharing pact with Japan, called the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), further straining ties amid a dispute over South Koreans pressed into forced labour during Japan’s wartime occupation of Korea.
