MND remarks on extension of GSOMIA

국방부, “지소미아 연장 검토는 일본이 수출규제 철회 이후 일”

The Ministry of National Defense took a stand yesterday that the extension of Korea-Japans General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) depends on Japan.


For the question on the GSOMIA extension, spokesman of national defense, Choi Hyeon Su (최현수), replied, Japan will have to withdraw the export regulations and when the Korea-Japan relationship improves, then the agreement will be reviewed. She added that there are no GSOMIA revisions currently being processed.

The remark correlated with the position of the Blue House.


The Director of the National Security Office of the Blue House Chung Eui Yong (정의용) recently said at a press conference, The recent conflict between the 2 nations was caused by Japan first. There is no willingness to continue with the GSOMIA unless the relationship with Japan improves.


Meanwhile, the 15th Korea-US Security Consultative Meeting (SCM) is scheduled for this coming Friday, however there will be no concern of GSOMIA as both Chung Wa Dae and MND are on the same page.


The current Korea-Japan agreement will only last until the 23rd of this month.
