South Korea notifies Japan of scrapping of intelligence pact

South Korea said on Thursday it was scrapping the intelligence-sharing pact with Japan, called the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), further straining ties amid a dispute over South Koreans pressed into forced labour during Japan’s wartime occupation of Korea.
