"This Free Trade Agreement (between South Korea and the US) was negotiated because it was in the interest of both our countries to increase trade and increase the prosperity and availability of jobs for our citizens. We believe this free trade agreement will do that, and we look forward to the Republic of Korea ratifying this free trade agreement as soon as it possibly can."
