South Korea will press ahead with a decade-old agreement under which the U.S. military headquarters in the heart of Seoul will be relocated south of the capital.
The Defense Ministry says that could also include the Korea-U.S. Combined Forces Command but a decision has yet to be made on that.
However, the ministry says the two countries are reviewing various ways to boost their joint combat readiness after the relocation process is complete.
In 2004, the two allies agreed to relocate the Yongsan base to Pyeongtaek, some 70 kilometers south of the capital, by the end of 2016.
