Rival party floor leaders head to Washington to discuss defense cost sharing Updated: 2019-11-20 04:37:56 KST

As Seoul and Washington failed to narrow their differences in their latest defense cost-sharing discussions, rival party lawmakers have rolled their sleeves up to possibly find a breakthrough at the parliamentary level.
Later this morning(10:15am), the floor leaders of South Korea's three largest parties--the ruling Democratic Party, the main opposition Liberty Korea Party and the centrist Bareunmirae Party-- will head to Washington for a five day trip, to explain the National Assembly's stance on the defense cost sharing issue and demand a reasonable share of the burden.
The lawmakers will meet with their counterparts at the upper and lower houses, such as Senator Charles Grassley and Representative James Clyburn. They will also speak with State department officials including Washington's Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun.
