SEOUL, December 03. /ITAR-TASS/. South Korea and Azerbaijan intend to develop military ties and defense industry co-operation. The corresponding agreement was reached at talks of the two countries’ defense ministers, the South Korean Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.
“South Korean Defence Minister Kim Kwan-jin and his Azerbaijani counterpart Zakir Hasanov signed a memorandum of understanding aimed at expanding defense cooperation between the two nations,” the ministry said.
During his three-day trip, Hasanov also met with South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman and the chief of the Defense Acquisition Administration Program to boost further co-operation in defense sectors, the ministry said. The Azerbaijani official’s first visit to South Korea since taking office comes four months after South Korea’s deputy defense minister visited the resource-rich country in Eurasia to boost defense ties, according to Yonhap news agency. South Korea established formal diplomatic ties with Azerbaijan in 1992.
In recent years, Seoul has been actively developing defense co-operation with a number of countries in various world regions in order to boost the sale of its armaments, including the T-50 Golden Eagle supersonic combat training planes, K9 self-propelled howitzers, warships and other military equipment.
