Corea del Sur y EUA no logran acuerdo sobre reparto de costos de su alianza

November 19, 2019 - Las conversaciones sobre reparto de costos de EUA y Corea del Sur fracasaron por las demandas del presidente Donald Trump de que Seúl pague $5.000 millones por albergar tropas estadounidenses, lo que hace surgir interrogantes sobre la estabilidad de una de las alianzas más estrechas de Estados Unidos

U.S. and South Korean officials on Tuesday publicly acknowledged the allies remain far apart in negotiations for increasing South Korea’s contributions to the costs for maintaining the American military presence on its soil.

U.S. negotiator James DeHart said the U.S. side decided to cut short a meeting that lasted less than two hours because Seoul’s proposals “were not responsive to our request for fair and equitable burden sharing.”

Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said Washington has been calling for a ”drastic increase” in South Korea’s contributions which the country finds unacceptable.

The United States stations about 28,500 troops in South Korea, mainly to deter aggression from the North.
