washington - US President Trump has, in principle, granted South Korea permission to buy more weapons. Seoul and Washington can therefore strengthen joint forces in the Korean region.
The White House announced that the president came to that decision after a telephone interview with the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in. With the permission, South Korea can purchase some billion dollars of weapons, including missiles, from his ally United States.
The decision comes about a day after North Korea's arch enemy successfully held an underground test with a suspected hydrogen bomb.
