USFK Deputy Commander's statement on extended deterrence mission

Remarks by Lt. Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy:

 

“The United States remains steadfast in its commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea and to maintaining stability on the Korean Peninsula, to include extended deterrence provided by our conventional forces and our nuclear umbrella.

 

B-52 missions reinforce the U.S. commitment to the security of our allies and partners, and demonstrate one of the many alliance capabilities available for the defense of the Republic of Korea.

 

The U.S. maintains an ironclad commitment to the defense of our partner nation, and this combined mission demonstrates the strength of the alliance between the United States and the Republic of Korea and the resolve of both nations to maintain stability and security on the Korean Peninsula.

 

As demonstrated by today’s mission, the combined U.S. and Republic of Korea air forces work and train together closely every day, and we are prepared to meet any threat to our alliance, or the great nation of the Republic of Korea.”
