SEOUL, July 19 (Yonhap) -- Senior South Korean and U.S. military officials will meet later this month for a high-level defense meeting here, the defense ministry said Friday, which is widely expected to address another delay in Washington's planned transition of wartime operational control (OPCON) to Seoul.

The Korea-U.S. Integrated Defense Dialogue (KIDD) will be held on July 30-31 in Seoul as the two countries are preparing to transfer OPCON to South Korea in December 2015 and draft a new joint military structure.
