Japan, South Korea to hold talks over WTO dispute in Geneva on Friday

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan and South Korea will meet on Friday in Geneva for planned talks to discuss their disagreement over Tokyo’s tighter export controls as part of a dispute settlement process through the World Trade Organisation, Japan’s trade ministry said.

South Korea last month initiated a WTO dispute against Japan’s export curbs involving three materials used in smartphone chips and displays.

If the talks do not resolve the issues, South Korea has said it would request a WTO panel ruling on the curbs.
