 The United States is considering reducing the number of US troops in South Korea. 28 thousand and 500.


Data map In the context of the continued easing of the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Yang Yunhui, a Global Times special reporter for global times in May 8th, said that although the United States and South Korea issued a statement that they would not retreat from the US and the DPRK talks, the United States may consider further reductions in the number of US troops stationed in Korea. For a while, the deployment of nearly 30 thousand US troops in South Korea has become the focus of attention of many media. The New York Times reported last week that a recent peace agreement between North Korea and North Korea meant no more than 20 thousand U.S. troops in the Korean peninsula were no longer needed, and President Trump had ordered The Pentagon to study the options for the withdrawal of the army from South Korea. The U.S. and South Korea officials quickly denied the report. Christopher Logan, a spokesman for The Pentagon, said that Trump did not require the The Pentagon to provide the options for cutting American troops in Korea, and the United States has not changed the plan for the situation and mission of the US troops. But Trumps public statements on this issue are somewhat uncertain. On the one hand, he said he would not make the withdrawal of the U.S. troops as a bargaining chip with the DPRK; on the other hand, he did not exclude the possibility of a final withdrawal of some of the troops, suggesting that some time in the future, he wanted to save the cost of the US troops stationed in Korea. According to the United States Wall Street journal reported on 6, Trump claimed that the United States spends about 1 billion 200 million dollars per year on the US troops in Korea. In order to move out of Seoul with the headquarters of the US armed forces, the South Korean government also provided 92% of the construction cost for the expansion of the Humphreys camp, which amounted to US $10 billion 700 million. But it still cant meet the appetite of the American side. The half commitment of the US military costs will expire at the end of 2018. Trump threatened that if the ROK could not afford all the expenses, the United States might consider withdrawing from the US troops. The United States and ROK signed a joint defense treaty between the United States and South Korea on the 6 day of the United States and ROKs joint defense treaty, which had been in South Korea for a long time in 1954, with a total strength of 320 thousand people at most. Beginning in 1990s, with the end of the cold war and the redeployment of US forces, the US forces in South Korea gradually entered a state of reduction. At present, about 28 thousand and 500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea, plus the troop exchange and the US South Korean military exercises. This figure may expand to 32 thousand. The site also exposed the main distribution map of the US troops in South Korea. It can be seen that the U.S. troops stationed in Korea are mainly distributed in three regions: one is the garrison in the north of Seoul, including the US Army Casey camp (1) in the East Dou Chuan City, the Army Red Cloud Army (2) in the government city, and Stanleys camp (3) and Rodrigo in the city of Sichuan. The shooter (4). The two is the garrison in Seoul and its surrounding areas, mainly in Seouls Longshan base (5), the Golden Army Battalion (6), the market barracks (7) and the sixteenth Air Force Base (8). The three is the garrison in the south of Seoul, mainly the air base (9) in the city of Wu mountain (9), the Humphreys camp in Ping Ze City (10), the army base in Daegu (11) and the military camp (12), the naval base (13) in the port of the town, and the Carol camp (14) in the city of Japan. If the US, Korea and Korea signed a formal peace treaty, whether the Korean Peninsula needed the US Army to become a new problem. American military retired lieutenant colonel Daniel Davis believes that in East Asia there are 50 thousand Japanese troops in Japan, even if the withdrawal of American troops in Korea, the US Army will not lose its military response ability in the sea and air in Asia. The South Korean Times said that the easing of relations between North Korea and South Korea meant that there was not much need for the United States to deploy anti missile system in South Korea. It is believed that the United States may consider abandoning the deployment of the sadad anti missile system in South Korea. Fang Xiaozhi, deputy director of the center for Foreign Army Research at the University of International Relations, told the global times that the withdrawal of American troops in Korea is now more of a pose or discussion option. Even if the peninsula peace talks have made breakthroughs, the withdrawal of US troops in South Korea is gradual and gradual. From the distribution and structure of the troops in the United States, the most powerful forces are the Seoul and the South and the South and the sea and air force, and the core security tasks are also the sea and Air Force bases; and the troops stationed in the north of the Seoul, as the frontier existence of the Allied forces, are far more politically meaningful than the actual military significance, and evacuate these units. It also helps to reduce the percentage of casualties in the US armed forces. Therefore, the US Army stationed north of Seoul may become the first US troops to withdraw.
