    Background: South Korean students were filmed by VISNEWS in Seoul June 13 protesting in the city streets against the agreement - recently reached between Japanese and North Korean Red Cross delegates - on repatriation of Koreans resident in Japan.

    Following the agreement - reached June 11 - the South Korean Government immediately severed all trade relations with Japan, threatened to break off all ties, and to use force to thwart what it described as a barbarous and inhumane measure. The South Korean view is that Koreans in Japan may now be sent to North Korea against their will.

    North Koran Communist sources maintain that 100,000 Koreans wish to go to North Korea from Japan, but this number is widely thought to be an exaggerated political claim. The agreement was only reached - after a number of deadlocks - when the Japanese representatives agreed that only a direct individual complaint to them would be allowed, instead of an appeal to a third party, such as the International Red Cross. This, however, is regarded as a face-saving concession for the North Koreans, preventing an exposure of their exaggerated claims concerning the number of Koreans wishing to go to North Korea.
