At present, the Seoul headquarters, defenders of the United States Defense, gather. Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Commander Mark Mills Joint Chiefs of Staff in the US Army, Commander Philip Davidson and Commander Robert Abrams, who oversees the Indo-Pacific, including the Korean Peninsula. 4×3 = 12 stars, 12 stars.
The reason for their meeting in Seoul is to attend the Security Council, which will take turns every year. This year, the issue of the Korea-Japan military information security agreement, Jisomia, a week before the end of the problem, is the biggest problem. On the plane to South Korea, Esper stated, "My message is that Jesomi must remain. Obviously, I will express US concern." A question was asked at a press conference after the meeting. First, Defense Secretary Chung Kyung-Doo said, "This is the basic idea that Jisomia has been maintained," assuming that consultation with Japan is good. Meanwhile, I also asked the United States to try to change Japan's attitude. On the other hand, US Defense Secretary Esper said, "China and North Korea are benefiting from the end of Jisomia or the conflict between Korea and Japan." There is no compelling reason to try to put it back on the right track.
At today's meeting, the United States had pressed Gismia and the 11th defense negotiations were underway. This is known to demand $ 5 billion, almost five times this year's contribution. The two ministers said, "I agree that defense contributions must be decided at a fair and mutually beneficial level, and that the eleventh round of negotiations must be concluded before the tenth agreement ends."
By the way. The United States has not given much pressure or talks with Japan, which has led to a decision to end Jizomia through restrictions on retaliatory exports. If you want to emphasize ROK-US-Japan military cooperation, not only South Korea will be defeated, but even the causal service provider, Japan, must express remorse for the minimum export restrictions. Secretary Esper has been meeting President Moon Jae-in at the Blue House since 4:00. The Blue House reaffirms its stance that there will be no somersault from Jisomia without a change in Japanese attitude.[고민정/청와대 대변인 (MBC라디오 ‘김종배의 시선집중’과 인터뷰) : 우리도 피치 못하게 지소미아 종료 결정을 했기 때문에 지금에 와서 아무런 변화도 없고 수출규제 문제라든지 한·일 간에 변화가 없는 상황 속에서 우리가 무작정 지소미아 종료를 번복한다거나 이런 것은 당시 결정이 신중하지 않았다라는 것을 얘기하는 것이기도 하거든요.]
On the other hand, there is a view that the United States is not biased towards Japan because it suppresses the maintenance of Chisomia. Jisomia is very important to protect US troops in Korea and North Korea from North Korea, which means that Jisomia is sensitive to the lives of Americans. The same applies to the balance of power against North Korea, China and Russia. The US-US commander, Abrams said, "The basic principle of Jisomia is a clear message that the two countries will prioritize stability and security in Northeast Asia rather than historical differences." President Mark Milly said, "North and China will benefit from the end of Gisomia."[마크 밀리/미국 합참의장 (지난 12일) : 미국은 일본과 매우 강력한 군사적·정치적 동맹, 방위 협정을 맺고 있습니다. 우리는 그 정도의 수준을 유지하고자 합니다. 당신도 알다시피, 미국과 일본은 이 지역에서 공통의 국가 안보 과제에 직면해 있습니다. 일본과 어깨를 나란히 하고 있는 것이 자랑스럽습니다.]
