South Korea says US troops will stay despite possible peace treaty

South Korea's government has said US troops will remain in the country, even if a deal is reached to formally end the Korean War. There are about 29,000 US military personnel based in South Korea, under a post-war security agreement. North Korea has previously made giving up its nuclear weapons conditional on the troops leaving the peninsula. But a South Korean government spokesman said their presence was "nothing to do with signing peace treaties".
