Hammering out a deal

Seoul’s top negotiator, Chang Won-sam, and Betts held their first round of talks last month in Hawaii. The current Special Measures Agreement, which dictates how much the United States and Korea contribute to U.S. military presence on the peninsula, is set to expire at the end of this year. [YONHAP]
