S. Korea Defense Minister: No Plans to Redeploy American Tactical Nukes Updated: 2011-03-03 00:00:00 KST

South Korea's defense minister says Seoul has no plans to have US tactical nuclear weapons redeployed here.
During a hearing at the National Assembly's National Defense Committee on Thursday, Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin testified that the South Korean government does not plan to discuss the redeployment of tactical nuclear weapons as a part of efforts to enhance deterrence against the North.
The testimony follows a statement by the spokesperson for the US National Security Council, Robert Jensen, on Monday that Washington supports a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and that tactical nuclear weapons are not necessary for the defense of the South.
