How NARS Research Request was Applied

“ NARS, ‘US Could Demand Increasing S. Korea’s Share of Defense Cost due to THAAD’ ”

Regarding the 10th Special Measures Agreement (SMA), there is a view that the US would demand an increase in Seoul’s share of the defense cost, based on 1 trillion won in expenses for the Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) deployment and 2 billion won of its operating cost.

000, a member of the National Assembly, released a report from NARS, citing that “If the THAAD system worth 1 trillion won and its operating cost contributing 2 billion won every year are reflected on the Non-Personnel Stationing Cost (NPSC), the US would demand to increase South Korea’s share of defense cost.”
