Moon calls for smooth transition of wartime control between allies

문대통령 "전작권 전환·주한미군 재배치 차질없이 추진해야"

Moon calls for smooth transition of wartime control between allies

 

Army Gen. Robert B. Abrams took office as the new commander of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) on Thursday.

 

The change-of-command ceremony took place at Barker Field in Camp Humphreys, a sprawling U.S. military complex in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggido. It was attended by top South Korean and U.S. officials, including Seoul's Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong Doo and Indo-Pacific Command chief Adm. Philip Davidson.

 

South Korean President Moon Jae In sent a congratulatory letter for the event which also marked the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the United Nations Command (UNC).

 

President Moon expressed his gratitude to Gen. Vincent Brooks who headed the UNC for the last 31 months and congratulated Gen. Abrams for his inauguration.

 

The president said he believes cooperation between South Korea and the U.S. will grow stronger with the new chief of the UNC and asked for a smooth execution of cooperative projects between the allies including transition of wartime operational control.
