South Korea and the United States have ruled out the possibility of military operations to secure the release of South Koreans held in Afghanistan, a South Korean official said Thursday. South Korean Foreign Minister Song Min-soon and US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte discussed the hostages during a meeting in Manila on Thursday on the sidelines of an Asian security conference, the South Korean Foreign Ministry official said.
