METI asks ROK to explain decision to remove Japan from “white list”

NHK reported this morning that the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry submitted to the ROK government yesterday its comments and questions on Seoul’s decision to remove Japan from its “white list” of nations eligible for preferential trade treatment. The ROK government is soliciting public views on this decision from Aug. 14 to Sept. 3. METI is reportedly asking the ROK to give the specific reasons and legal basis for this action, saying without such an explanation, the ROK’s measure will be regarded as a “groundless arbitrary retaliatory action.”
