Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, however, told a separate press briefing on the matter that Japan will deal with South Korea the same way it treats other countries in the region.

South Korea has been on the list of nations entitled to simplified export control procedures since 2004, which cover a wide range of items, except for food, timber and other goods. The move came after Tokyo in July tightened its export controls on semiconductor materials bound for South Korea.

Japan on Friday chose to remove South Korea from its list of trusted trading partners qualified for preferential treatment in export procedures.

South Korean representatives for Honda and Toyota did not provide any commentary on the sales trends and said they would need to assess the reasons for the decline.

"The South Korean public is angry about Japan.It will soon become a taboo to drive a Japanese cars in Korea", Daelim University College automotive engineering Professor Kim Pil-so said.

South Korea will push to diversify import negotiations with various countries and try to expand local production by solving pending issues that prevent local companies from producing items that are badly needed. It also warned them to be careful in visiting places in the country that are associated with Japan.

South Korea's finance minister Hong Nam-ki announced on Monday measures aimed at eliminating South Korea's external dependent industrial structure as part of its efforts to cope with Japan's recently-imposed export curbs.

To do so, 100 strategic core items will be selected as items to be secured over the next five years based on their demand within South Korea.

Japan's foreign ministry also advised its nationals not to get involved in any trouble by staying away from protest sites.
