U.S. Defense Secretary-nominee James Mattis spoke about the situation on the Korean Peninsula during a confirmation hearing, calling it insecure.

The U.S. Senate has held a confirmation hearing for Defense Secretary nominee James Mattis. Mattis said that the withdrawal of the U.S. forces from Korea and Japan would present difficulties to America's efforts to fulfill its duty of protecting its alliance with these nations as well as its own interests. Mattis has made it clear that he has no plans to withdraw U.S. forces from Korea. He expressed hope that the U.S. will implement the mutual defense treaty while its allies acknowledge respective duties. This apparently means that while Mattis is opposed to withdrawing U.S. forces from Korea, he wants the U.S.' allies to shoulder larger defense costs. Regarding the North Korea nuclear issue, Mattis said that the security situation on the Korean Peninsula remains very unstable because of Pyongyang's continuous provocations.
