U.S. and South Korea
agree on troop withdrawl
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Defense
Secretary Dick Cheney and South Korean of-
ficials agreed Yesterday to the withdrawal of
several thousand U.S. troops over the next
three years as Korea "takes the lead" in its
Cheney, on the first leg of an Asian-Pa-
cific tour also taking him to the Philippines
and Japan, said the troop reductions would
not be done "precipitously" and pledged to
keep U.S. soldiers based here as long as the
Korean people want them.
"We aren't going to move precipi-
tously... our commitment remains strong,"
Cheney said at a news conference. " The
threat remains undiminished."
U.S. officials said Cheney told the South
Koreans he wants to cut U.S. forces in Asia
and the Pacific by 10 to 12 percent, with
5,000 of the troops pulled out of South Ko-
rea and 7,000 to 9,400 leaving the Philip-
pines and Japan.
There are 120,000 troops based in the
three countries, including 43,000 in South
Cheney and his South Korean counterpart
Lee Sang Hoon also pledged to move toward
handing over the command of the joint
U.S.- Korean military structure - now
held by a U.S. four-star general - to a Ko-
rean general, the two officials announced.-
The developments mark a major
change in the two allies' relationship and
may result in the most dramatic contraction
of the U.S. here since the end of the 1950-53
The Republic of Korea "can now do more
to provide for its own security," Cheney told
The defense secretary said such steps were
made possible by South Korea's "spectacular
record" of economic growth. He said it also
was due in part to congressional pressure to
slash U.S. defense expenditures, particularly
overseas at a time of lessened superpower
Lee said his government would also give
"positive consideration" to increasing its
support for the U.S. troops stationed here
under a 1954 mutual defense pact.
A U.S. official, who spoke on condition
he not be identified by name, said Cheney
wants Seoul to double its $300 million an-
nual contribution to the support of the U.S.
The South Koreans at first "reacted with
horror" at the suggested troop pullout., be-
cause they believed it would be the first step
in a total withdrawal and would mean "the
American security blanket is gone, " he said.
But the official said that after a series of
discussions he believed the Korean officials
would accept the proposals.
D. C. Mayor indict
WASHINGTON (AP) - Mayor
Marion Barry was indicted Thursday
on three charges of perjury and five
counts of cocaine possession, ac-
cused of smoking crack cocaine and
lying repeatedly to a federal grand
jury questioning him about drug use.
His attorney said he would plead
innocent to all charges.
Barry was undergoing treatment
at a Florida substance abuse clinic
when the grand jury returned the in-

enrolled in the clinic after his arrest
last month in what authorities say
was a videotaped hotel drug sting.
Only one of the charges stems
from that encounter between Barry
and Rasheeda Moore, an old friend
brought in by the FBI. The other
charges result from his association
with Charles Lewis, who has
pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges.
The 14-month investigation has

Barry has told top political aides
he would abandon his hopes for a
fourth term, but sources close to the
mayor have said he would refrain
from making any quick public
statement about his political future
any time soon.
The mayor, who is being treated
for what an aide has described as
primarily an alcohol problem, has
turned the day-to-day operations of

over to a top deputy.
In the face of rumors that have
