Japan allows first exports of hydrogen fluoride to S.Korea since export curbs - source

SEOUL, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Japan has approved shipment of hydrogen fluoride used in making computer chips to South Korea for the first time since imposing tighter export controls in July, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

In July, Japan imposed export curbs on hydrogen fluoride and two other materials used to make chips and screens to South Korea, deepening a row rooted in Japan's wartime history.

Japan has since allowed exports of photoresists, one of the other two items under export curbs, twice. (Reporting by Hyunjoo Jin Editing by Robert Birsel)
