ROK says South Korean ship was not involved in transfer of goods with DPRK tanker

NHK reported that Defense Minister Onodera informed reporters on Tuesday that South Korea has told Japan that an ROK tanker was not involved in the transfer of goods to a North Korea tanker in international waters in the East China Sea earlier this month as alleged by Japan. An MSDF ship spotted a South Korean tanker alongside a North Korean tanker in the East China Sea on May 3, and the GOJ asked the ROK government whether the two vessels were involved in the transfer of goods.
