USAG Humphreys, Republic of Korea —

Republic of Korea (ROK) Minister of National Defense Lee Jong-sup visited Camp Humphreys today for the first time since taking office.

대한민국 이종섭 국방장관이 취임후 처음으로 캠프 험프리스 미군기지를 방문하였다.


The ROK defense minister met with Gen. Paul LaCamera, commander of United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command and U.S. Forces Korea, and senior leaders from the organization at the USFK headquarters building.

이종섭 국방장관은 주한미군 사령부에서 유엔군사령관/한미연합사령관/주한미군사령관 폴 러캐머라 대장 및 주요 참모들과 만남을 가졌다.


Both the minister and commander reaffirmed their commitment to a strong combined defense readiness posture during discussions on the importance of routine combined training and the upcoming Ulchi Freedom Shield exercise.

이종섭 국방장관과 러캐머라 사령관은 정례적인 연합 훈련과 앞으로 있을 을지 자유의 방패 연습의 중요성에 대해 논의하면서 강력한 연합방위태세 공약을 재확인하였다.


The two sides shared the view that building, maintaining and enhancing relationships at all echelons was important to future efforts. In addition, they agreed to strengthen interoperability of allied practices and capabilities by conducting theater-level combined training to increase readiness.

양측은 모든 군 제대에서의 관계를 구축하고, 유지하고, 증진시키도록 앞으로 노력해 나가기로 하였다. 아울러, 준비태세 향상을 위해 전구급 연합훈련을 실시함으로써 동맹간의 연습과 역량의 상호운용성을 강화해 나가기로 의견을 나누었다.


In addition, the minister also received operational briefs and experienced the “We Go Together” spirit on display by all the service members he encountered.  

그리고, 이종섭 국방장관은 작전 보고를 받았으며 그가 만난 모든 장병들을 통해 “같이 갑시다” 정신을 확인하였다.
