A senior Cheong Wa Dae official said Thursday South Korea will review whether to renew a pact with Japan on sharing military information, if needed, according to a politician here.
"For now, (the government) has a position to maintain it. It can be reconsidered in accordance with (relevant) situations,"
Chung Eui-yong, director of Cheong Wa Dae's national security office, was quoted by Rep. Sim Sang-jung, head of the progressive Justice Party, as saying during a closed-door meeting with politicians.
Chung, during the meeting at Cheong Wa Dae, briefed the politicians on the government's response to Japan's tougher export restrictions against South Korea.
