Korea Agrees To Use
U.S.-Flag Ships To Carry
According to a recent announce- ment by Rep. Helen Bentley (R-
MD), the South Korean government has agreed to haul military cargo purchased in the U.S. exclusively in
U.S.-flag vessels until a deficit of 50,000 tons of cargo owed to Ameri- can shipping lines is made up.
Various agreements between the
U.S. and Korea state that portions of military shipments are to be car- ried in U.S.-flag vessels, and 100 percent when credit is involved.
Rep. Bentley wrote to Korean Am- bassador Byong Hion Lew stat- ing that "there has been little if any effort to comply with that require- ment." As a result, a deficit of as much as 75,000 tons of cargo due to
U.S. shipping lines has accumu- lated. The Maritime Administra- tion, however, has suggested settling to volume at 50,000 tons.
In his reply to Mrs. Bentley,
Ambassador Lew stated, "It has been agreed that all cash- and credit- funded material will be shipped on
U.S.-flag vessels until such time as the deficit has been eliminated."
