The commander of U.S. Forces Korea has expressed concern South Korea's decision to terminate its key military intelligence sharing pact with Japan, saying it could send a wrong message to their adversaries in the region.
Speaking to reporters at Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek on Tuesday, Robert Abrams said the GSOMIA pact had sent a clear message the two neighbors were prioritizing stability and security over historical differences.
Unless Seoul makes a last-minute U-turn on its decision, the pact will expire on November 23rd.
