S. Korea's top security adviser in the U.S. for talks on OPCON transfer, missile defense
South Korea's national security chief is in Washington this week for meetings on regional and bilateral security issues with his U.S. counterpart Susan Rice.
Kim Jang-soo , the top security adviser to President Park Geun-hye, said Wednesday that he plans to discuss Seoul's request for a delay in the transfer of wartime operational control from Washington to Seoul in 2015.
Earlier this month, the two sides were reported to have agreed the current deadline was not appropriate, considering the mounting nuclear and missile threats from North Korea.
As for Seoul's adoption of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, Kim said no decision has yet been made, but that Korea's missile defense would be separate from that of the U.S.
