In face of rising North Korean threat, Trump will approve sales of high-tech military gear for Japan, South Korea

The U.S. has already deployed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense batteries in South Korea

(National SentinelGlobal Defense: President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday said he would approve the sale of high-tech U.S.-made military equipment to South Korea and Japan amid rising tensions with North Korea over its maturing nuclear weapons and ICBM programs.

“I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

“President Trump also provided his conceptual approval for the purchase of many billions of dollars’ worth of military weapons and equipment from the United States by South Korea,” the White House said in a statement.

The phrase “conceptual approval” is in regards to the time it takes to move purchases through the Foreign Military Sales process, which is handled via the State Department and the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, and then approved by Congress.

The U.S. has already deployed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense batteries in South Korea. Both countries are also customers for the tri-service F-35 program, the Washington Examiner reported.
