In a bilateral summit during the G20 meeting, South Korea and the United States have agreed on a three-year delay of the transfer of wartime operational control.

The decision was made by South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama. The two leaders decided to delay the timing of the OPCON transfer until the end of 2015 due to changes in the security situation on the Korean Peninsula. They also agreed to deepen the two countries' alliance and make more efforts to push forward the South Korea-U.S. free trade agreement.
