South Korea, US to set up combined army division
South Korea and the US have agreed to establish a combined army division in 2015, Seoul's defence ministry said Thursday.
According to the ministry, the combined division will be composed of the US 2nd infantry division stationed in Uijeongbu and a South Korean brigade-level unit, Xinhua reported.
It would be the first time that the US military will set up a combined army unit with troops of another country.
The army unit will be led by a US major general, with a South Korean brigadier general named as an assistant division commander.
Choi Yun-hee, chairman of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and US Forces Korea (USFK) Commander General Curtis Scaparrotti have recently agreed to set up the unit to strengthen the defence posture of combined forces at a tactical level, the ministry said.
