Importance of government-Japan-Korea cooperation in terms of security policy
North Korea launched two ballistic missiles one after another on the 24th. The government says Korea has announced the cancellation of the Japan-Korea Military Information Comprehensive Protection Agreement = “GSOMIA” and that the agreement is valid until November. The policy calls for the importance of collaboration between the three countries.
North Korea launched two ballistic missiles one after another on the 24th, both of which are believed to have fallen into the Sea of Japan outside of Japan's EEZ = exclusive economic zone.
In response, the government severely protested North Korea that the launch of ballistic missiles violated the UN Security Council resolution.
In addition, South Korea's announcement of the cancellation of the Japan-Korea Military Information Comprehensive Protection Agreement = “GSOMIA” on the 23rd was said to have had no particular effect on the progress of information collection and analysis. It will be valid until November, so I would like to continue to cooperate with Japan, Korea and Japan, the United States and Korea. "
On the other hand, the Korean army has received this launch, and the agreement is still valid and will share the necessary information based on Japan's request.
Officials of the Ministry of Defense said that the SDF radars were also capturing missiles, but it was pointed out that it is desirable to exchange confidential information for detailed analysis, and the government continues to maintain security. Our policy is to call for the importance of cooperation between the three countries.
