Observation of a discussion on ‘Sharing of North Korean missile warning information’ in Korea-US-Japan talks
The Korea-Japan summit seems to discuss the first conflict in 4 years … Also pay attention to the content of the Korea-China talks
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Correspondent Kim Seung-wook = Defense Minister Lee Jong-seop will attend the 20th Asian Security Conference (Shangri-La Dialogue) to be held in Singapore from the 2nd to the 4th, he announced the Ministry of National Defense on the 1st.
In particular, it is expected that at the meeting of the defense ministers among the three countries, a plan to establish a system for sharing warning data on North Korean missiles will be discussed.
Currently, South Korea and the United States share real-time warning information through the Korean Military Operations Command Center (KTMO-CELL) and the USFK Operational Command Center (TMO-CELL), and the United States and Japan also in real action. – time information sharing system.
However, since no such system has been established between the Korean military and the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, information is shared between Korea and Japan through the United States.
As US and Japanese leaders decided to upgrade South Korea-US-Japan security cooperation to a new level at the trilateral summit on the sidelines of the G7 summit held in Hiroshima, Japan last month, there is hope that the sharing of information about North Korea’s missiles the first step will be among the three countries.
The meeting between the Korean and Japanese defense ministers will take place four years after the meeting between Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo and Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono in November 2019.
In this meeting, it is expected that the main issue will be the ‘patrol aircraft conflict’, which acts as an important obstacle to the expansion of defense exchanges between the two countries.
The conflict between South Korea and Japan was triggered on December 20, 2018, when the Japanese side claimed that the Navy ship Gwanggaeto the Great, which was searching for a North Korean fishing boat in distress in the East Sea, had scanned the fire control radar in a Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force P1 patrol plane that flew near the ship.
At the time, Japan released a video filmed inside the patrol plane, claiming that this was evidence, while the South Korean side refuted that there was no radar investigation, and instead that the patrol plane made a low-flying threat near the Great Gwanggaeto.
The positions of these two sides have been running side by side until now, and exchanges between defense authorities have also ended in the result.
The defense ministers of Korea and China will take the throne for the first time in about six months since the 9th ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting in November last year.
The South Korean side is expected to make it clear that North Korea’s nuclear and missile provocations are acts that undermine regional peace and stability, and ask China to play a constructive role in stopping North Korea’s provocations.
However, since China has more or less tolerated North Korea’s provocations, such as opposing additional sanctions against North Korea in the United Nations Security Council, attention is paid to what attitude it will take during the negotiations.
Minister Lee also plans to hold talks with the defense ministers of major countries, including Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, and the European Union, assess the security situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, and discuss ways to expand bilateral defense cooperation with those countries.
The Shangri-La Dialogue is a multilateral security conference held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore every year since 2002, hosted by the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (IISS) in the UK.
