    The government flatly denied claims on Monday that Indonesian defense secrets were stolen during a Seoul break-in, but it said it had asked South Korea to verify reports that intelligence officers were involved in the theft.

    The Chosun Ilbo newspaper, citing an unidentified South Korean government official, reported on Monday that members of South Korea’s spy agency broke into a visiting Indonesian delegation’s hotel room to steal information on a possible arms deal.

    “The NIS [National Intelligence Service] agents, for the national interest, were trying to figure out the Indonesian delegation’s negotiating strategies,” Chosun quoted the senior official as saying. “Getting caught was an unintended mistake.”

    There goes the deal!

    South Korea has made a big blunder.

    It will go a long way to degrade the credibility of the South Koreans, not only with Indonesia, but will all others, not only in the defence realm but also in business!
