Japan-ROK accord on military information sharing extended

Saturday morning’s Asahi wrote that South Korea’s Defense Ministry announced on Aug. 25 that the nation’s general security of military information agreement (GSOMIA) with Japan that was concluded in November 2016 has been automatically extended for another year because neither Japan nor South Korea expressed an intention to end the agreement by the Aug. 24 deadline. Mainichi and Nikkei wrote that Defense Minister Onodera told the press on Aug. 25 that it has been decided to extend the accord until November 2018 and that Japan will strengthen defense cooperation with South Korea.
