(3rd LD) S. Korea postpones signing controversial military pact with Japan
SEOUL, June 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korea announced Friday it is holding off on signing a controversial military pact with Japan following strong backlash from political circles and the public over the sensitivity of entering into a military agreement with its former colonial ruler.

The announcement came less than an hour before the two nations were scheduled to sign the deal in Tokyo, after South Korea's ruling Saenuri Party urged the government to put off the signing and discuss the issue with the National Assembly.
