Nobody is going anywhere! Seoul has denied rumors about the withdrawal of US troops from South Korea


Rumors about a possible reduction in the size of the US military contingent in South Korea caused great concern in Seoul. In Washington, the Koreans assured that no changes were foreseen for the time being, but did not exclude them in the future.

Earlier, the New York Times published an article stating that US President Donald Trump instructed the country's defense ministry to consider the possibility of reducing the American military contingent stationed in South Korea.

One of the senior representatives in the National Security Council of the White House said that the messages are completely untrue
- quotes the agency spokesman for the South Korean president, Yong Yong Chang.

In addition, the agency also received an e-mail comment from the representative of the Pentagon, which stated that "the mission in South Korea will remain the same, and the balance of forces will not change."

Recall that at the moment on a permanent basis in South Korea are 28 and a half thousand soldiers and officers of the United States.

        To the very point said! good

        I, too, as soon as I read the title of the article and immediately imagined “BACK” (!), I involuntarily laughed. lol
        For the BACK No. - in the present historical time - it would have sounded, if not as misinformation in the media, then at least as a political ANECDOT repeat type:
        "The US is leaving! Seoul has confirmed rumors about the withdrawal of US troops from South Korea." laughing
        Now! No matter how! Just so the United States and fled with its "departure" from the South Caucasus!
        Only naive crying they can believe in it!

        I read comments and wonder how much the people are not far away or everyone started trolling each other ... The USA, in the cooperation of the entire Anglo-Saxon world led by Israel, crushed the entire bourgeois world and not only all of these Germany, France, Korea, Japan, not to mention all sorts of Poland, Surinamas. Haiti, Argentines or South Africa and others .. Understand on the planet earth there are very few countries that the world bourgeoisie cannot milk as it wants .. And that’s why the Cold War 2.0 is being waged because they need to finish off the rest ... It doesn’t matter what rubbish they carry on meetings of the UN, it is important who has the STRENGTH, and while we can resist this we are the ENEMY !! And with the enemy you know what they are doing .. Therefore, do not bleat the FIG about the fact that they are wrong and do not play by the rules ...

      Occupation (from the Latin. Occupatio - “seizure, occupation”) in the general case is the occupation by the armed forces of a state of a territory which does not belong to it, not accompanied by the acquisition of sovereignty over it and carried out in the absence of the will of the state possessing sovereignty over the territory [1], usually temporary. The occupation should be distinguished from the annexation, the act of accession by the state of all or part of the territory of others unilaterally.

      As far as I know, the US Armed Forces in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan are with the consent of the Republic of Kazakhstan itself.

                  So I can’t understand what "occupation" is, because the USA is there with the permission of the RK itself?
                  If the US Armed Forces had occupied by force RK, without their consent, then it would be an occupation.

                      Many are familiar. And with the fact that since the beginning of 1949, Kim Il Sung began to turn to the Soviet government with requests for help in a full-scale invasion of South Korea. And with the fact that the details of the DPRK attack on the South Caucasus were agreed upon during the visit of Kim Il Sung to Moscow in March - April 1950. And that only almost 3 months after the DPRK attack on the South Caucasus, the Americans landed there.
                      What other amazing discoveries will you tell us?

                        The division of Korea into North and South Korea occurred in 1945 after the defeat of Japan, which had previously ruled Korea, in World War II. The USA and the USSR signed an agreement on joint management of the country. The dividing line of the zones of influence of the two superpowers ran along the 38th parallel. After the Korean War (1950-1953), two young states were divided by a demilitarized zone.
                        Kim Il Sung was only trying to unite the country, which greatly annoyed the Americans!

                        Americans have been present there since 45. They could start a war right away, but they went on a trick: with the help of their own puppet government in Kazakhstan, they asked the UN for help. Then they created the president through the gene assembly, bypassing the veto of the USSR (Now they want to use this experience too) in order to attract more strength! And the hostilities began not only, but with the allies ...

                      Of course I’m familiar. DPRK attacked Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan asked for help from other countries in the UN.

    Frightened southern to colic in the stomach. Probably all the phones broke off, begging the Americans not to leave them. Who will protect in the event of something from the DPRK. Negotiations are negotiations, but they understand that at any moment the Americans can reduce everything to 0 and then again at the sight of the DPRK.

    When they start talking about something that this will not happen, then there are prerequisites for this and sooner or later it will happen. Hence the conclusion - American troops will leave Korea sooner or later. And over time, and from Japan. But they need help with this.
