Korea and U.S. to hold meeting on OPCON transfer this week Updated: 2014-08-04 07:00:55 KST

Korea and the United States will hold their second round of high-level talks this week on the transfer of wartime operational control from Washington to Seoul.
Diplomatic sources say there are expectations of an outline of the timing and conditions for the OPCON transfer, as the talks are taking place just two months ahead of the annual Security Consultative Meeting between the two countries.
Discussions are also expected to include an assessment of the South Korean military's response capability against North Korea's nuclear threats.
The two-day talks begin on Wednesday in Washington and the delegations will be lead by Korea's Deputy Defense Minister Ryu Je-seung and U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia David Helvey.
