The United States demanded that South Korea increase five times the cost of maintaining the US military on the Korean peninsula. It is reported by the channel YTN.


US demands South Korea to increase spending on maintaining its army


Washington demanded from Seoul a fivefold increase in the cost of maintaining the American military contingent. According to the channel, we can talk about the amount of 4,7 billion dollars. As the head of the Korean Parliamentary Unification Committee, Yoon San Hyun, stated that the United States Chief Negotiator for Defense Expenditure Allocation James Dehart announced a demand for higher contributions on 6 on November.

According to Washington, the costs of US security for the allies are too high. Thus, South Korea should increase its spending on the maintenance of the US military to 5 trillion won (about 4,7 billion dollars). At the same time, the channel claims that the United States demanded that part of these funds be allocated for the maintenance of the US military outside the Korean Peninsula.

As previously reported, in the framework of the agreement on assistance and mutual defense between the United States and South Korea, thousands of American troops are located in the country about 28,5. Their maintenance costs the United States 5 billion dollars with South Korea spending a little more than 900 million dollars a year. In September, Washington already demanded from Seoul to increase the cost of maintaining the American army.

Recall that the US Army has been in South Korea since the Korean Won 1950-1953 years.

        Who is next in line. I’m already tired of counting and generally lost count, Germany, all of NATO as a whole, including the Baltic Baltic states, South Korea, who is next in line?
        The most interesting thing is that all these requirements and Wishlist are designed to ensure that all these increases in spending will go to feed the bottomless Amerzosovsky VePeK.

      And in the DPRK, the 4th largest army if that is the PRC with the 1st largest army. So South Korea against the Northerners alone will not last long.

    Koreans can "safely" send Americans through the forest. Because even if Korea does not agree to pay, the guardians of democracy will still not get out of their country. So this one-to-one situation resembles an anecdote about "did not work".

    The States demanded that South Korea increase five times the cost of maintaining the US military contingent on the Korean peninsula
    This is allied and on an American scale. I wonder if the Koreans refuse, will the Americans be offended and withdraw their contingent from South Korea? The question is, of course, exclusively rhetorical. Each time in different parts of the world, the United States is increasingly disappointing its "allies". And this is good.

    South Korea fell between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, the DPRK is knocking at the door threatening to fill its face, on the other hand, the United States swears to protect, but at the same time they have a wife (economy), they also require maintenance! Bad luck!
