CFC/USFK commander cites importance of ROK-Japan information sharing agreement

연합사/주한미군 사령관, 한일 군사정보보호협정의 중요성 언급


YONGSAN GARRISON, Republic of Korea (ROK) -- Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, Combined Forces Command and U.S. Forces Korea commander, welcomes the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) signed today by the governments of the Republic of Korea and Japan.


대한민국, 용산기지 --연합사/주한미군 사령관 빈센트 브룩스 장군은 대한민국과 일본이 오늘 군사정보보호협정(GSOMIA)을 체결한 것을 환영한다고 밝혔다.

“I believe this was a courageous decision by both countries that will help me accomplish my mission of defending the Republic of Korea,” said Gen. Brooks.


브룩스 장군은 "한일 양국이 체결한 이번 협정은 연합사 및 주한미군사령관으로서의 역할을 잘 수행할 수 있게끔 돕는 용감한 결정"이라고 밝혔다.

The GSOMIA enables South Korea and Japan to share military information, including intelligence, so both nations are better postured to counter North Korean threats.

군사정보보호협정은 한일 양국이 북한의 위협에 잘 대응할 수 있는 태세를 갖추게끔 첩보를 포함한 군사정보를 공유할 수 있게 한다.

“This agreement will promote greater collaboration and enhance the readiness of the combined ROK and U.S. forces to respond to the unacceptable threat posed by North Korea,” said Gen. Brooks.


브룩스 장군은 이어서 "이 협정은 한미 양국간의 협력을 증진시키고 북한의 용납할 수 없는 위협에 대응하는 한미군의 대비 태세를 증강시킨다.”고 덧붙였다.
