US to maintain military posture in South Korea to deter DPRK, Chinese threats

Pentagon announces ‘no changes’ after global posture review, as expert say US eyes expanded role for USFK

The U.S. has no plans to change its military posture in South Korea, the Pentagon announced Monday, while stating that it seeks “greater regional access for military partnership activities” in the region to deter Chinese and North Korean military threats.

The announcement came as the U.S. Department of Defense unveiled the results of the first global force posture review (GPR) of U.S. military resources under the Biden administration, more than nine months after the review began in February.
