South Korea has held separate talks with India and the US to strengthen its defence industrial and technological alliances with the two countries.
The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) in Seoul said the talks were held on 24 April in New Delhi and on South Korea’s southern Jeju Island respectively.
