The South Korean National Assembly's foreign affairs committee unanimously adopted a resolution urging Japan to retract its export curbs on South Korea.

The parliamentary committee earlier put forth a resolution backed by the ruling and opposition parties after a review of five different drafts.

Rival parties had initially hoped to adopt the resolution last Wednesday but the parties failed to agree on when to hold a vote.

The floor leaders of the ruling and two opposition parties agreed to handle the resolution at a meeting last Friday.
