Background: A United States delegation, headed by Deputy Secretary of Defence William clements, has held two days (12 & 13 September 1973) of security talks with top South Korean officials in Seoul. They were taking part in the sixth Security Consultative Meeting, in which representatives of the two countries have convened annually (since 1968) to discuss the international situation and matters affecting their Mutual Defence Treaty. The South Korean team was headed by Defence Minister Yu Jae-hung.
The United States party included Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Noel Gaylor, Commander in Chief U.S. Forces, and General Richard Stilwell, Commander of the Eighth U.S. Army in Korea.
Prior to the talks, Mr. Clements paid a courtesy call on President Park Chung Hee and visited South Korean and United States military units. At the headquarters of the White Horse Division of the South Korean Forces, he expressed appreciation for the South Korean contribution to the war effort in Vietnam. "Our mutual efforts were not in vain," Mr. Clements said.
