New U.S. commander takes charge in South Korea

New U.S. Commander in South Korea, General Robert B. Abrams, took charge in an inauguration ceremony at Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, which lies about 100 km (60 miles) from the border with reclusive North Korea.Abrams assumed the command from General Vincent K. Brooks and will oversee about 28,000 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea. With his current title as the chief U.S. Forces Korea commander, he also serves as the commander of the United Nations Command and the Republic of Korea-U.S. Combined Forces Command. Earlier this week, the U.S. and South Korean Marines kicked off military drills on Monday (November 5) under the Korean Marine Exchange Program for the first time in months, although larger exercises were suspended, according to the South Korea’s Defence Ministry.Pyongyang has been pushing for a formal declaration to end the 1950-53 Korean War and replace the armistice that stopped the fighting but left the combatants still technically at war.
