Joint Statement on Trilateral Joint Chiefs of Staff Meeting

CAMP H.M. SMITH, Hawaii – United States Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, hosted Republic of Korea Army Gen. Lee, Sun-Jin, Chairman of the ROK Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force Adm. Kawano, Katsutoshi, Chief of Staff of the Japanese Self-Defense Force, for a trilateral meeting in Hawaii February 10.

 The session, the second between the Defense Chiefs of the United States, Republic of Korea, and Japan since July 2014, featured discussions on trilateral information sharing and collaboration in light of the increasing North Korean nuclear and missile threats. General Lee joined the U.S. and Japanese military leaders in Hawaii from Seoul via video teleconference in order to maintain readiness posture in the peninsula due to North Korea’s January nuclear test and their recent long-range missile launch February 7. 

 The ongoing discussions reflected the nations’ efforts to enhance trilateral information sharing on North Korea nuclear and missile threat.  The three chiefs of defense reconfirmed that North Korea’s fourth nuclear test and long range missile launch were direct violations of U.N. resolutions as well as serious provocations against the international community and agreed to firmly respond to the acts utilizing trilateral information sharing.  The senior military leaders also agreed to coordinate further on mutual security issues to enhance peace and stability in the region.
