S. Korea, U.S. to set up joint division of troops next year Updated: 2014-09-05 06:28:41 KST

Seoul and Washington will establish a COMBINED division of their TROOPS next year with the task of carrying out wartime operations.
South Korea's defense ministry says the unit will be the first of its kind in the world.
It will be set up in the first half of next year and be headed by a major general-level U.S. officer.
Details on the new unit's missions are not available, but officials say during wartime it would carry out special operations such as eliminating weapons of mass destruction and civil missions against North Korea.
