Japan says its export control review compatible with free trade, after Korea dropped from list

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Japan’s foreign minister said on Friday that a review of the country’s export control regime, which saw South Korea dropped from a trade “white list”, is “fully compatible” with the global free trade regime.

Taro Kono made the comments at a meeting with foreign ministers of Southeast Asian countries, South Korea and the United States in Bangkok.
