SEOUL (Reuters) - Japan has created an obstacle to building peace on the Korean peninsula, a senior South Korean official said on Friday, saying the country would review whether to maintain a military information pact with its neighbor.
Japan’s move to strip South Korea of fast-track export status is a “public humiliation” of the country, Kim Hyun-chong, a deputy national security adviser to President Moon Jae-in, told a news briefing.
South Korea has summoned the Japanese ambassador to protest against Tokyo’s latest export curbs, Yonhap News Agency said.
