S. Korea to review GSOMIA renewal during NSC meeting Thursday, announcement could follow soon Updated: 2019-08-22 07:06:53 KST

Our top story this morning.
South Korea's presidential office is reportedly set to discuss whether to renew or withdraw from the intelligence sharing agreement with Japan.
This will happen during a National Security Council meeting this Thursday.
The General Security of Military Information Agreement or GSOMIA as it is commonly known is due for renewal by Saturday.
President Moon Jae-in is likely to approve the council's decision regardless of whether it decides to renew or withdraw.
Sources say the decision could be announced as soon as today.
If neither South Korea nor Japan declare their withdrawal by Saturday the 90-day notice deadline the pact is automatically renewed for another year.
South Korea has dangled the idea of possibly leaving GSOMIA since Japan accused Seoul illegally transferring chemical materials to North Korea, one of the reasons Tokyo gave for imposing exports curbs on South Korea.
