Defense Minister: Will Swiftly Pursue OPCON Transfer

Defense Minister Song Young-moo says that South Korea will swiftly regain wartime operational control(OPCON) from the U.S. in line with timing and conditions.
 
Addressing lawmakers Thursday during the National Assembly’s inspection of the Defense Ministry, Song said OPCON transfer will allow South Korea’s military to significantly advance its capacity.
 
Song says the ministry will shift its war potential concept and military structure from defensive to offensive.
 
He said in the event of enemy provocations, South Korea will seize victory by gaining control or destroying key targets with its Korean Air and Missile Defense(KAMD), Kill Chain, and Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation systems, defeating the enemy in the shortest period of time with fewest casualties.
