The United States and South Korea reached tentative agreement on a treaty to end South Korean harvesting of U.S.-origin salmon off the Northwest and Alaskan coasts. Similar drift-net treaties were negotiated earlier this year with Japan and Taiwan, whose fleets also fish in international waters in the North Pacific. A U.S. official said the treaties provide for a cooperative program to minimize catching of salmon spawned in the United States.

A new accord that gives South Korea more jurisdiction over U.S. soldiers accused of crimes has gone into effect. The revised treaty allows U.S. soldiers accused of murder, rape, arson, drug trafficking and eight other serious crimes to be turned over to South Korean police upon indictment. The accord replaces an earlier agreement under which indicted soldiers remained in U.S. military custody until they were convicted in the South Korean judicial system and all appeals were exhausted.
