South Korea has refused the multinational technology corporation in using government mapping data.

South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport insisted on this decision. The refusal was fair-founded that the national security interests had to take precedence over consumer conveniences

This case has become a precedent in the South Korean-US relations.

US armed forces are on the territory of the country, and according to the senior military leadership, they are not going to end their occupation. In this context, some concerns about national security and sovereignty seem quite strange. Certainly, it is a signal of panic rising in Asia because of Trump’ victory.
