SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea said on Wednesday it will extend a review of a request by Google Inc in June for permission to take government mapping data out of the country for use in servers worldwide, with a decision due by Nov. 23.
Seoul had previously said it would decide on the request by Wednesday. Google, whose corporate parent is Alphabet Inc, has said it needs to put the data on servers worldwide to fully enable mapping services in South Korea.
Following a meeting of officials on Wednesday, the government said it needs to make a "cautious decision" on the matter after holding further discussions with Google on issues such as security.
