U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said on Friday it is crucial the United States and South Korea reach an agreement on cost-sharing for U.S. troops in the South by the end of the year with a higher burden to be shared by Seoul.

South Korea is a wealthy country and could and should pay more for the deployment of U.S. military in the South, Esper told a briefing after meeting South Korean Defence Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo.
