South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday dismissed recent reports that U.S. President Donald Trump has named a specific price for keeping U.S. troops in South Korea, saying the leaders simply do not speak in such a manner.
"Not just President Trump but no leader of any country in the world speaks in such a manner," the president was quoted as saying. "Such reports can be an insult to President Trump," he added, according to his spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom.
Moon’s remarks follow news reports that claimed Trump may have asked South Korea to pay US$1.2 billion as part of costs to maintain U.S. Forces in Korea. Earlier reports said Washington has asked Seoul to pay at least $1 billion for burden sharing, while Seoul remains reluctant to ask its own legislature for any more than $889 million.
