General Kim Seung Kyum, CJCS Conducts Office Call with General K...

  • Chairman Kim Seung Kyum hosted General Kenneth S. Wilsbach, Commander, PACAF for an office call on Friday the fourth of November during General Wilsbach's visit to the Republic of Korea. They discussed the nuclear and missile threat posed by DPRK, the regional security landscape, and avenues to enhance mutual cooperation.

    Chairman Kim and General Wilsbach agreed that "the November 2nd ballistic missile launch by DPRK, where they launched a missile south of the NLL near the territorial waters of the ROK for the first time since the division of Korea, and the November 3rd ICBM launch were grave provocative acts that harmed the peace and stability of not only the Korean Peninsula but the broader international society, and were clear violations of UN Security Council Resolutions."

    Further, Chairman Kim emphasized that "we must imprint it on DPRK that as they continues to provocate, the alliance's combined defense posture will grow even stronger, and they will assuredly pay a price."

    Chairman Kim and General Wilsbach assessed that "the Vigilant Storm exercise that has been on-going since October 31st was a successful training event that verified the wartime combined operations execution posture of ROK US Air Forces and made the enemy shiver with fear."

    Further, Chairman Kim and General Wilsbach spoke on cooperating closely to coordinate the 'deployment of strategic assets at a level that is tantamount to permanent stationing' as agreed to by the MINDEF and SECDEF during the 54th SCM.

    General Wilsbach also extended his condolences and consolations to the people of Korea who have fallen in great grief as they mourn the tragedy that occurred in Itaewon. Chairman Kim expressed his gratitude for the heroic actions of the USFK servicemembers who saved many lives on that day, and emphasized that such valor captures the spirit of the ROK US alliance that has continued for 70 years.

    General Wilsbach is a well-renowned expert and friend of Republic of Korea, having served here previously as the USFK Deputy Commander / 7 Air Force Commander from 2018 to 2020. He visited the Republic of Korea to strengthen the cooperation of the ROK US Alliance and the ROK US Air Forces. //End//
