South Korea asks Japan for DPRK missile data

Yomiuri and Nikkei wrote that according to the South Korean defense minister, the ROK government called on Japan on Wednesday to share Japanese intelligence on North Korea’s latest ballistic missile launch based on the bilateral GSOMIA, which expires on Nov. 22. The GOJ is reportedly willing to provide relevant information, including data on the projectile’s impact in Japan’s EEZ, which the South Korean military may have had difficulty collecting. An unnamed Defense Ministry official said that there would be no reason to turn down a request for such information. On the other hand, the Japanese side did not ask Seoul for corresponding data. GOJ officials are reportedly hoping that the Moon administration will reconsider its decision to terminate the bilateral defense information sharing arrangement in the wake of the latest launch.
