South Korea's finance minister holds meeting to discuss Japan's export curbs

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s finance minister held a meeting to discuss Japan’s decision to tighten exports of tech materials to the country, a finance ministry official said on Monday.

The meeting was earlier reported by Yonhap and comes after Japan said it would step up restrictions on exports of high-tech materials used in smartphone displays and chips to South Korea in response to a Seoul’s ruling on forced labor during World War Two.

The official did not give further details.
