Egypt, South Korea sign two military cooperation agreements spanning over defense industries and logistical support

Egypt and South Korea have inked two Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) in military cooperation covering defense industries and logical support, Arab News reports.
The first memorandum, the Saudi media notes, covers defense industries and logistical support, and the second covers organizing cooperation in defense research and development to coordinate and exchange military expertise between the two countries.
Both countries also agreed two other deals ranging from a contract for the joint manufacturing of K9 self-propelled howitzers with South Korean company Hanwha to a contract for the management and joint local manufacturing of the howitzer system.
The agreements signed in Cairo, come following several other agreements signed between the two countries late last month during a visit of Asian country’s leader Moon Jae-in to the Arab country.
