South Korea will inform the US of its worries over surveillance.

The Pentagon reportedly snooped on its allies in Seoul to determine their stance on arming Ukraine. The South Korean government will discuss a leak of classified military documents with the US, which suggests that Washington spied on Seoul to determine that the South Koreans were hesitant to sell artillery ammunition to the US for fear it would end up in Ukraine. The documents show that when Seoul agreed to sell artillery shells to the US last year, Foreign Affairs Secretary Yi Mun-hui told his boss, National Security Adviser Kim Sung-han, that the government was mired in concerns that the US would not be the end user if South Korea were to comply with a US request for ammunition. A South Korean presidential official told Reuters that Seoul will discuss the “issues raised” by the leak with Washington and will study similar cases involving other nations to determine whether to lodge a formal complaint. South Korean policy forbids the transfer of weapons to active conflict zones.

The most important details in this text are that Kim suggested selling 330,000 artillery rounds to Poland knowing that the US planned on “getting the ammunition to Ukraine quickly.” Yi stressed that Seoul could not violate its own policy, and expressed concern that US President Joe Biden would call his South Korean counterpart, Yoon Suk-yeol, and push him to change the policy. The documents are the latest in a series of leaked files detailing the US war plans in Ukraine, its surveillance of its allies, and other “sensitive” material related to Ukraine, China, the Middle East, and terrorism. The authenticity of the documents remains unverified, and it is currently unclear who published the files. Following the publication, US officials said they were working to remove the material from the internet, but many of the documents remain accessible on social media.
