S. Korean, U.S. officials to meet in Seoul ahead of defense cost sharing negotiations Updated: 2019-08-19 13:27:12 KST

Other officials from South Korea and the U.S. are meeting in Seoul on Tuesday as well for talks over sharing the defense cost of American troops stationed on the peninsula.
According to a diplomatic source, the South Korean foreign ministry's delegate Chang Won-sam will meet his American counterpart Timothy Betts.
They were the chief negotiators in the previous talks on the 10th Special Measures Agreement -- a defense cost-sharing deal signed in March for keeping the roughly 28-thousand U.S. troops stationed in the South.
That deal was good only for this year, so talks will start soon on the next deal.
