South Korea and the US have not reached an agreement on the cost of US troops



SOUTH KOREA and the US failed to reach an agreement on the financial contribution of Seoul to the cost of the stay of some 28,500 US troops in the country at the end of two days of negotiations, the last before the existing deal on 31 December expires.

Lawmakers in the South Korean parliament say Washington asked for up to $ 5 billion a year, five times what Seoul agreed to pay for this year.



Trump often criticizes South Korea

As part of his “America First” policy, President Donald Trump has demanded that many US allies, including NATO members and Japan, spend more on defense.

He has often accused South Korea of ​​being a wealthy country that is profiting from U.S. military forces in the country as a legacy of the Korean War, which ran from 1950 to 1953, and because of the threat posed by North Korea.

Failure to reach an agreement could lead to the same scenario as last year when the deadline expired and an agreement was subsequently reached with retroactive application.

Failure to reach an agreement, experts warn, could jeopardize the entire future of US presence in South Korea. The first consequence is the immediate deployment of thousands of South Koreans servicing the U.S. military on unpaid leave.

There have been several protests in South Korea against US demands for increased monetary allocations, with polls showing that a large majority of residents oppose the increase in these funds, but also that a convincing majority is in favor of remaining US forces in South Korea.
