Why did they declear to disaffirm GSOMIA with Japan ?
South Korea said there were a big change of circumstance about relationship of security and defence with Japan because Japan decided to rescind a coutesy position on export controls.Probably they thought disaffirm of GSOMIA became one of good card to negotiate with Japan.
However it looks a shallow idea. Basically they didn't have enough governance for import product which has possibility to use for wepons.It was their fault.And they switch the focus of argument from their fault to security and defence issue with Japan.
What was a rection of Japan and USA ?
Minister of foreign ministry,Mr.Kono criticized that they had completely wrong decision if we see security and defence circumstance of current our region. And an exective of USA government also showed uncofortable comment to their decision.
What influence will be happend ?
Many Japanese exparts said that there was not a big influence on Japanese side.Japan has a capability to get several information byourself without GSOMIA and South Korea may have much influence than Japan. And another exective of USA government said that changing relationship between Japan and Korea gave a bad influence to relationship of three countries include USA and Bejing,Moscow and Pyongyang may became happy.
And many commentaters said that President Mr.Mun wanted to get close with North Korea with disaffirm og GSOMIA as a gift for Mr.Kim. However Mr.Kim has ignored Mr.Mun. South Korea becomes isolated and looks going to fall.
