South Korean Defense Ministry said Friday that South Korea and the United States agreed to boost cooperation between their militaries in information and communication technologies.

Choi Kwang-sup, head of South Korean Defense Ministry's resource management headquarters, and John G. Grimes, assistant secretary of U.S. defense ministry, signed on an agreement here on the cooperation, which calls for increased cooperation between the countries' militaries in the information technology sector, the ministry said.

The agreement is to hold a forum once a year, but various working-level consultations will be held throughout the year, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency quoted a defense ministry official as saying.

One of the purposes for establishing the forum is to secure close cooperation between South Korea and the United States in their command system before the transfer of the wartime operational control of South Korean troops from the U.S. side to the South Korean side, so they can effectively support joint missions of their militaries, said a statement by the ministry.
