South Korea and the United States intend to strengthen military cooperation after the launch of a "spy satellite" by North Korea. This was reported by Yonhap.
The talks between Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Yang Yong-mo and his American counterpart, Admiral Lisa Franchetti, were held aboard the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, which docked at the naval base in Busan, 320 kilometers southeast of Seoul.
During the talks, Yang expressed the need to strengthen the allies' common defense posture, emphasizing the military threat posed by North Korea.
"Amidst the serious security situation where North Korea's nuclear and missile threats are advancing, let's take the joint defense posture of South Korea and the United States to another level by working closely together based on the ties established between our navies," he said.
Earlier, we reported that North Korea received assistance from Russia to successfully launch a spy satellite this week, according to South Korea's intelligence agency. This was reported by Reuters.
