The US side must be on demand to increase defense costs
Democrats "Set Initiative" vs. Korean Party "Beware"
3 party leaders, US visit on the 20th
Political circles are calling for a bipartisan response to pressure from the US to increase defense spending.
Representatives of the three ruling parties will visit the United States next week (20th), noting whether they can hold a bipartisan resolution in dealing with disputes about the end of Jisomia and quarrels over the Fast Track Bill.
This is a report from Na Yeon-soo.[기자]
$ 4.7 billion, US $ 5.4 trillion
Only when the US demanded nearly five times the sharing of the existing defense costs did they all respond.
But while the Democratic Party issued a resolution calling for a fair settlement of defense contributions, it made a series of statements and aggressive attacks, the Liberal Democratic Party had to overturn the government's decision to end Jisomia, saying it should be as wise as that.[이인영 / 더불어민주당 원내대표 : 납득할 수 없는 인상 요구는 우리 국민이 동의하기 어렵습니다. 미국 정부는 방위비 분담금, 지소미아 연장을 순리대로 풀어주길 희망합니다.] [나경원 / 자유한국당 원내대표 : 심각하게 고민하고 신중하게 처신해야 될 부분임을 다시 한 번 말씀드립니다 당장 미국과의 관계에서 지소미아 파기 결정에 대해서는 번복해야 된다는 점을 다시 한 번 말씀드립니다.]
The three party delegations from the negotiating group will visit the United States on the 20th and give their congressional position on defense contributions.
Making bipartisan resolutions ahead of this schedule has become a priority for opposition parties.[심상정 / 정의당 대표(지난 15일 유튜브 방송) : 방위비 분담금조차도 공동결의안을 채택하지 못하면 미국 가서 각자 딴소리 할 겁니까? 19일에 꼭 해야 되는데….]
If the US insists on $ 4.7 billion and our Congress finally refuses to ratify the ratification, the government will not be able to contribute to the US.
But realistically, there is no way to break the ROK-US alliance, so it is worth noting that Congress will be able to make a concerted effort to find the best amount to increase the government's bargaining power.
