 A breakthrough in South Koreas US wartime command negotiations: Wen Yin: Kim Jeong-euns visit to Korea soon


According to Yonhap News Agency on November 1, Wen said on the same day that the DPRK-US summit will be held soon, and that the DPRK-US, DPRK-Russia, DPRK-China and DPRK-Japan heads may also meet in the near future. The starting point for the common prosperity of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia is at hand, and this miraculous opportunity must not be missed. He also said Kim Jeong-eun will soon visit Seoul. Wen said that another leading role in building an inclusive country and achieving sustainable national development is the Peace Peninsula. In the past year, the DPRK and the ROK held three summit talks. Through military agreements, the two sides completely eliminated the risk of military conflict on the peninsula. He said that residents of the five islands in the western waters are proud to live and work in peace and contentment, fishing for flower crabs safely in a wider sea area, and the border areas between Korea and the DPRK such as Pozhou, Lianchuan and Gaocheng will be transformed from dangerous areas into new areas of exchanges and cooperation. Han Zhaomei will achieve complete denuclearization and perpetual peace on the basis of reliable mutual trust. Senior South Korean officials in Tsingwatai said on November 1 that it is certain that Kim Jong-un will return to South Korea as soon as possible, and the South Korean side hopes that he will visit the country as soon as possible within the year. In addition, the ROK hopes that the DPRK-US high-level talks on denuclearization next week will achieve results and comprehensively promote the process of denuclearization of the Peninsula through the second DPRK-US summit.

The day before, South Korea and the United States held the 50th Security Consultative Conference, this years focus is Conditional Handover of Wartime Command. After the meeting, the defense ministers of the two countries signed the Guidelines for South Korea-US Defense Cooperation. The contents include that the US troops stationed in South Korea will not withdraw from South Korea after handing over command power in wartime, maintaining the current command structure of the Joint Command, but will be led by the Korean Army General as commander and the US Army General as deputy commander. In a joint statement issued after the meeting, the ROK-US Defense Minister reiterated the commitment of the United States to South Koreas co-defense and extended deterrence, expressed the support of the United States for the Korea-DPRK 9.19 Military Agreement, and explicitly agreed that the ROK-US Joint Command would move to the ROK Ministry of Defense within this year. In addition, in order to avoid the impact of the denuclearization process on the peninsula, the two sides decided to shelve the joint air exercise of the warning trump card scheduled for December and to hold consultations on whether to cancel the evolution of the Korean-American joint army scheduled for next year.

Korean media said that after the agreement reached in 2014 on the conditional transfer of wartime command between Korea and the United States, the work was in fact in a stagnant state, which now equals that both sides are ready to start and enter a start-up state. The Korean media also predicted that the transfer of wartime command is expected to be completed before the end of Wen Yins term in 2022. However, South Korean Defense Ministry officials on November 1 publicly refuted rumors that South Korea and the United States agreed to transfer wartime command on the premise that the relevant conditions were met, so the transfer time could be decided only after the assessment of the relevant conditions was completed and those conditions were fully met. The official said that at present, no specific time has been taken into account, but rather the need to meet the conditions in order to achieve the early transfer of wartime command.

South Koreas East Asia Daily commented that after the transfer of command power in future wartime, South Korea will lead the joint operations between Korea and the United States, which means that the United States recognizes the operational capability of the Korean Army. The provisions of the joint declaration of the Korean and American defense ministers concerning the maintenance of the size of the existing U.S. military forces in Korea also put an end to the controversy over whether U.S. President Trump would withdraw or reduce the U.S. military forces in Korea after taking office. According to an editorial published on November 1 by the Korean National News, the previous transfer of command power in wartime has been delayed repeatedly, most of which is due to the deterioration of inter-Korean relations and the increase of Korean military threats. However, the situation on the peninsula has changed dramatically recently. The inter-Korean dialogue and nuclear negotiations between the DPRK and the United States have resumed, and the military tension has been eased and the trend has gradually become concrete. Now, against the North Korean threat, it is against the right to hand over wartime command. South Koreas SBS TV said on November 1 that the Korean-Korean 9.19 Military Agreement came into force on the same day, and the two sides stopped all hostile acts on the ground, at sea and in the air. Korean media photographs show that from the observation platform of Yanping, Oujin Prefecture, Incheon City, South Korea, on the same day, the coastal fortress of the Korean long artillery position on the island has been closed. South Korean officials said that the cessation of all hostilities between the two countries is a historic progress in the development of bilateral relations, providing an important opportunity for easing military tensions between the two countries, building mutual trust and eliminating the danger of war.
