Korea will not be sharing military intelligence with Japan

Press secretary for the Korean defense ministry on Mar 24 stated that the work on the memorandum of understanding on the military intelligence sharing with Japan and US that was discussed at working-level is now stopped. “It is very important that it is done in the right time. Now it is not the right time.” – mentioned press secretary.

Press secretary denied reports by some media that Japan, America and Korea are working to sign the memorandum.

In 2012 Japan and Korea were working to conclude the agreement on sharing confidential information, mostly in the military area, but the public opinion in Korea became increasingly negative and the work has stopped right before the agreement was to be signed.
