US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Mark Nafer, speaking at an invitation to a conference commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Korean War,
First of all, he said that the ROK-US alliance is a “key axis” for peace and security in the Indo-Pacific.
He then emphasized that the US is a more important partner than China in both security and economy.

Deputy Assistant Secretary Nafer also mentioned several times that the ROK and the United States faced attacks from North Korea and China together in the Korean War 70 years ago.
At the same time, he emphasized the improvement of Korea-Japan cooperation and Korea-Japan relations.

In another video talk the day before, the three countries Korea, the United States, and Japan urged them to confront China’s malicious actions, and it is interpreted as a move to guard against China every day.
Defense Minister Seo-wook and USFK Commander Abrams emphasized the fierce ROK-US combined defense posture with one voice.
[서 욱 / 국방부 장관 : 대한민국의 위상에 맞는 책임 국방을 구현하고, 더 강한 연합 방위 능력을 갖추기 위해 조건에 의한 전작권 전환을 지속 추진해나갈 것입니다.]
Prior to the inauguration of the Biden government, US dignitaries are one after another highlighting the solid ROK-US alliance and the anti-China front.
It can be interpreted that while the US is promoting the expansion of the’quad’, an anti-China solidarity council, it is indirectly pressing Korea’s participation in anti-China solidarity.
