SEOUL (Kyodo) South Korea will halt an antidumping probe into four Japanese makers of industrial robots at the request of a South Korean producer, Yonhap News Agency reported Thursday, quoting the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy.

The Korea Trade Commission, the watchdog operating under the ministry, made the decision Wednesday after Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. asked for a halt in the ongoing investigation 10 days ago, citing a need to gather further information, Yonhap said.
