The South Korean and Japanese defense ministries and the U.S. Defense Department have finalized a trilateral information-sharing arrangement concerning the nuclear and missile threats posed by North Korea.


This arrangement creates a framework by which the defense authorities of the three nations may voluntarily share classified information, Pentagon officials explained. The Defense Department is to serve as the hub for information shared trilaterally, officials said, adding that the arrangement does not impose any new legal obligations on the signatories.

The arrangement advances the security of the three signatories, officials said, because sharing information on the nuclear and missile threats posed by North Korea will allow for a more effective response to future provocations and during contingencies.
