Washington confirms no intention to pare down USFK in S. Korea: Foreign ministry Updated: 2021-09-06 20:32:04 KST

The South Korean government says the United States has confirmed that it has no intention to pare down its troop presence on the Peninsula.
An official at Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday that the two countries share a firm understanding when it comes to the role of and need for USFK.
This comes amid speculation that the U.S. might reduce its presence here because 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 said the clause had only been added to prevent the Trump administration specifically from pulling troops out, something that is not a concern under President Biden.
