    Background: AFTER 14 YEARS OF NEGOTIATIONS, JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA HAVE RESTORED DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. DELEGATES FROM BOTH COUNTRIES EXCHANGED AGREEMENTS IN THE CAPITAL BUILDING, SEOUL YESTERDAY (SATURDAY).

    JAPANESE FOREIGN MINISTER, MR ETSUSABURO SHIINA AND HIS SOUTH KOREAN COUNTERPART, MR TONG-WON LEE HANDED OVER THE RATIFICATION INSTRUMENTS AT A CEREMONY WATCHED BY SOUTH KOREAN PRIME MINISTER, MR CHUNG IL-KU-UN AND OTHER MINISTERS.

    THE BASIC RELATIONS TREATY AND ITS RELATED AGREEMENTS WERE SIGNED IN TOKYO ON JUNE 22. BUT FIERCE PARLIAMENTARY DEBATES AND RIOTS SHOOK BOTH CAPITALS BEFORE THE AGREEMENTS WERE RATIFIED -- IN SEOUL IN AUGUST AND IN TOKYO EARLIER THIS WEEK.

    THE AGREEMENTS ESTABLISH NORMAL RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1905 WHEN KOREA WAS PLACED UNDER JAPANESE PROTECTION.

    IN 1910 JAPAN ANNEXED KOREA AND OCCUPIED IT UNTIL THE END OF THE PACIFIC WAS IN 1945 WHEN THE ALLIED VICTORY DIVIDED THE COUNTRY INTO COMMUNIST NORTH AND PRO-WESTERN SOUTH.

    ALLIED OCCUPATION AUTHORITIES IN JAPAN ALLOWED SOUTH KOREA TO ESTABLISH A MISSION IN TOKYO, BUT JAPAN HAS NEVER HAD ANY OFFICIAL REPRESENTATION IN SOUTH KOREA.
