Statement by NSC Spokesperson Ned Price on Japan and the Republic of Korea Signing GSOMIA

The United States welcomes the news that the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan have signed a General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA). This agreement will allow the ROK and Japan, two of our closest allies in the region, to significantly strengthen bilateral, and with us, trilateral cooperation on deterring and defending against the North Korean threat.  The United States will continue to pursue efforts toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, including implementation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, in close coordination with our allies in the Asia Pacific.
