S. Korea dismisses UNC's alleged move to include Japan as official member

S. Korea dismisses UNC's alleged move to include Japan as official member

 

South Koreas Defense Ministry on Thursday strongly opposed an alleged push by the U.S.-led United Nations Command (UNC) to include Japan as an official member.

 

If Japan obtains the membership as one of the UNCs sending states, it would pave the way for its military involvement in the event of an armed conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

 

Except for South Korea and the United States, the UNC currently has 16 sending states including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy and New Zealand.

 

They will provide support in case of a contingency on the peninsula. The support indicates combat troops, equipment and other necessity.

 

On the UNCs alleged move, Col. Roh Jae Cheon, the Deputy Ministry spokesman said Japan did not participate in the Korean War, so it cannot serve a role as a sending state citing U.N. Resolutions 83 and 84 in a regular briefing.
