US Defense Secretary Mark Esper visited the Pentagon office today (November 9) and met with Defense Minister Chung Kyung-du from 11:00.

Chung recently said the security situation on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia is very urgent, and it is very meaningful to discuss the alliance.

[CEO Kyung-Doo Chung / Defense Defense: Japan raises security issues and announces economic retaliation, which is causing adverse effects on Korea-Japan relations and ROK-Japan security cooperation.]

Mr. Esper reaffirmed his basic stance on the alliance, saying security cooperation in India and the Pacific is important.

[Mark Esper / Secretary of Defense: Today I reaffirm that the US-ROK alliance is like an iron barrel. The US-ROK alliance is a key pillar of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast Asia.]

However, there were no public comments on the defense contribution contribution, ROK-Japan military information security agreement, and medium-range missiles that were of interest.

The Foreign Ministry said that Esper did not comment on ROK-US defense contributions at the meeting with Secretary-General Kang.

In the afternoon, Mr. Esper, who prevented President Moon from the Blue House, said he expects talks to resume early, referring to the Panmunjom meeting.
