Kevin Fahey, assistant secretary of the Department of Defense, said the U.S. government holds its relationship with South Korea in high regard and extends the same degree of importance to other ally countries.

He commented that DoD eyes to partner with the South Korean military in various science and technology areas including directed energy, hypersonics, quantum science and microelectronics, the department said Tuesday.

Fahey said the partnership may cover the implementation of training, integrated operating capacities, shared policies and developmental efforts to reinforce military operations. He added both countries also prioritize initiatives in cybersecurity and intellectual property.

He noted that the department is exploring the creation of a 5G network with South Korea.
