S. Korea moves to ‘normalise’ military pact with Japan

SOUTH Korea will fully implement a key military intelligence-sharing pact with Japan, a defence ministry official told AFP today, as the two countries move to thaw long-frozen relations and renew diplomacy to counter Pyongyang. 

At a fence-mending summit on Thursday, the neighbours agreed to turn the page on a bitter dispute over Japan’s use of war-time forced labour.
