Defying U.S. pressure, South Korea to end intelligence pact with Japan

South Korea is set to let an intelligence-sharing pact with Japan lapse on Saturday over a feud about history and trade. The expiry of the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) is likely to intensify discord between South Korea and the US. The US has been keeping pressure to maintain the pact as an important element of trilateral security cooperation in Asia.

Glad that South Korea changed their minds at the last minute. Despite their historical quarrels, North Korea's threat is existential. They know that.
