UK, South Korea deepen defence ties

by Jon Grevatt

South Korea and the United Kingdom have pledged to expand defence co-operation, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) in Seoul has announced.

The MND said on 6 January that South Korean Defense Minister General Suh Wook discussed ways to deepen the bilateral defence relationship with his UK counterpart Ben Wallace during a phone call on the same day.

The MND said the effort was part of the UK’s strategy to expand defence ties with countries in the Asia-Pacific region following its exit from the European Union.
