U.S. gives first positive response to delaying OPCON transfer
Washington has reportedly given its first positive response toward delaying the transfer of wartime operational control to South Korea from the end of 2015.
The Korean Broadcasting System reported Monday that the U.S. may make its decision official during President Barack Obama's visit to Seoul next month.
The report says the positive outlook stems from a constructive meeting between the two countries' top military officers in Washington earlier this month.
However,South Korea's defense ministry declined to comment on the report.
Seoul wants the transfer pushed back from the current scheduled date of December 2015, citing the ongoing and unpredictable threat posed by North Korea.
