Washington confirms no intention to pare down USFK in S. Korea: Foreign ministry Updated: 2021-09-07 06:09:00 KST

Washington has no intention of reducing troop presence on the Korean Peninsula.
According to an official at Seoul's foreign ministry, the allies share a firm understanding when it comes to the importance of USFK.
This comes amid speculations of such a possibility, as the draft of a defense budget in Congress omits the lower limit lawmakers had put on the number of American troops stationed in South Korea.
But sources familiar with the situation in Congress points out, the clause had only been added specifically to prevent the Trump administration from pulling troops out, something that is not a concern under President Joe Biden.
