South Korea's top naval officer will make a weeklong trip to Washington, D.C. and Hawaii for meetings to discuss naval cooperation between the two allies, the Navy said Sunday.

Adm. Um Hyun-seong, South Korea's chief of naval operations, plans to hold a series of meetings with his American counterpart Adm. John M. Richardson, Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer and Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the Pacific Command, during the trip to start later in the day.

Um plans to discuss cooperation related to South Korea's operation and maintenance of Aegis destroyers and the exchange of sailors, including naval academy cadets, the Navy said.

Among other agenda items are preparations for the allies' combined naval drills and this year's Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise, the world's largest international maritime warfare exercise, it added. (Yonhap)
