President Rhee urges General Coulter to request for US permission to allow South Korean technicians to restore and repair the war tanks that the US was going to scrap into iron. Rhee argues that these tanks are indispensable for the ROK’ s national defense. He is also willing to pay the US in cash or iron scraps to get these tanks.
