Sharing Military Expenses: US Make’s 'Final Offer' To Korea

The United States has asked South Korea to share US $ 1.3 billion a year to maintain U.S. forces stationed on the Korean Peninsula, up nearly 50% from last year, a senior administration official. Trump said the news on Thursday, according to Yonhap.

This figure is much lower than the US $ 5 billion that the US wants Korea to share in previous negotiations. Most of the money that the United States asks South Korea to share is used to pay thousands of Koreans working for U.S. military units on the Korean peninsula.

The official told Yonhap news agency that the US proposal was "a last resort" and "quite reasonable".
