SEOUL (AFP) – South Korea will remove Japan from its “white list” of trusted trading partners, Seoul’s finance minister said on Friday (Aug 2), reciprocating just hours after a similar move by Tokyo.

“We will continue making efforts to solve this issue diplomatically,” said Mr Hong Nam-ki, “but we will also remove Japan from our white list and go through a process to strengthen our export controls.”
