S. Korea considers competitive bidding for spy drone acquisition
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Dec. 26 (Yonhap) -- With the United States moving toward the sales of Global Hawk advanced spy drones at a higher than expected price, South Korea may adopt competitive bidding to negotiate a better offer for the high-altitude drones along with other potential deals on the table, a senior government official said Wednesday.

Seoul has shown interest in the high-altitude, long-endurance Global Hawk drones to conduct intelligence missions on North Korea, as it is preparing to take over wartime operational control from Washington at the end of 2015.
