Troops in South Korea
The United States will keep its current level of troops in South Korea in order to maintain Washington’s defense commitment to its Asian ally, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday, as quoted by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.

"US commitment to the Republic of Korea [official name of South Korea] remains ironclad and the US will continue to use a full range of diplomatic and military capabilities to uphold this commitment. This includes maintaining the current US force levels on the Korean Peninsula," Mattis stated.

The US secretary also stressed that Washington and Seoul would continue their work to achieve the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"As always in close consultation with Republic of Korea and other partners, our diplomats continue their work to achieve the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," he stated.
