SEOUL — South Korea hopes to persuade U.S. officials to sell the country unmanned spy planes, Ministry of National Defense officials confirmed Monday.

But, an MND spokesman said Monday, the U.S. is reluctant to make the sale because officials fear possible leaks of the technology behind the Global Hawk surveillance aircraft.

According to a Korea Herald report, South Korea has developed low-altitude surveillance planes but hopes to purchase four of the $45 million U.S. planes.
