U.S. president Donald Trump said Seoul agreed to purchase billions of dollars worth of military equipment from Washington.
So far no specifics have been arranged.
That's according to the acting US ambassador to South Korea, Marc Knapper at a meeting with reporters on Thursday.
Although Trump discussed the sale of the American hardware with President Moon Jae-in, they were unable to get into the details given the limited time he had in Seoul.
Knapper noted there are still existing orders to be filled, such as the F-35 fighters.
But Seoul needs to make decisions on other items, such as Apache helicopters, the Aegis radar system. and the P-8 naval aircraft.
The acting ambassador added, overall, Trump's visit was a success, as it helped deepen the relationship between the two countries and their leaders.
