The Defense Ministry says that the tentatively signed military intelligence sharing pact with Japan will be submitted to a Cabinet meeting for approval on Tuesday.
Ministry Spokesman Moon Sang-gyun confirmed the plan at a news briefing Friday amid possibilities that President Park Geun-hye will chair the Cabinet meeting.
Government representatives from South Korea and Japan will formally sign the General Security of Military Information Agreement(GSOMIA) after it is approved by the Cabinet and signed off by the president. The provisional accord passed a vice-ministerial meeting on Thursday.
The spokesman said that the two countries have picked their final officials to sign off on the pact. But he declined to elaborate further, adding that Seoul and Tokyo will announce their selections as well as when and where to sign the accord after final consultations.
