The United State and South Korea have come to an agreement to begin discussions to amend the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS).

"I now look forward to intensified engagement with Korea in an expeditious manner to resolve outstanding implementation issues as well as to engage soon on amendments that will lead to fair, reciprocal trade," U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer said.

Both The United States and South Korea anticipate further discussions and/or meetings to be scheduled in the coming weeks.
