(AP) South Korea says its top military officer has put off a plan to visit Washington due to current tension with North Korea.


South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Jung Seung-jo had planned to meet his U.S. counterpart, Gen. Martin Dempsey, in Washington on April 16 for regular talks.


Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said Sunday the allies have agreed to reschedule the meeting because Jung couldn't be away from South Korea for several days at a time when North Korea is escalating its threats to attack.


North Korea has threatened to launch attacks on South Korea and the U.S. and produce more fuel for nuclear weapons. It is protesting South Korea-U.S. military drills and toughened international sanctions on the country.


The U.S. has 28,500 troops in South Korea.
