South Korea to share intelligence with Japan via three-way channel involving US

According to Kim Hyun-chong, a deputy national adviser to the 'Blue House' (South Korea's presidential administration), Seoul will share intelligence with Japan through a three-way channel involving the United States, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

Earlier, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that Japan still expects South Korea to keep its promises on the contentious issue of wartime forced labour and to work to rebuild trust after South Korea's decision to scrap a deal to share military intelligence.

A senior official said that the decision to end the intelligence-sharing deal with Japan was unavoidable as it had "ignored" Seoul's constant offers of dialogue to resolve a row over wartime Korean forced labourers.
