한국 백색국가서 日배제 첫 논의

Government discusses removing Japan from whitelist


The South Korean government began a discussion on removing Japan from its whitelist.


The government held a ministerial meeting on Thursday at the Seoul Government Office and discussed stripping Japan of its Ga level export classification.


The agenda item was one of the countermeasures the government named earlier as Japan removed South Korea from its list of trusted trading partners.


The South Korean government currently classify its trading partners in Ga and Na levels. Ga level countries are the government designated partners trusted with items that could be diverted for military use.


There are 29 countries on the Ga level and the list includes the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Australia and Japan.


The government plans to create a Da level solely for Japan and set new standards for exports to Japan.
