Top U.S. military official says average American questions need of troops in S. Korea, Japan Updated: 2019-11-12 13:27:28 KST

The Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff has claimed that the average American would question whether American troops really need to be stationed in South Korea and Japan.
That remark, made Sunday by General Mark A. Milley, is seen possibly as a way to put pressure on Seoul and Tokyo to pay more for their defense by suggesting that a U.S. troop presence cannot be taken for granted.
Regarding South Korea's decision to terminate the intel-sharing pact GSOMIA, Milley said the deal is critical to regional security.
Milley is scheduled to attend the South Korea-U.S. Security Consultative Meeting in Seoul on Friday along with the U.S. Defense Secretary, Mark Esper.
