SEOUL, South Korea: South


SEOUL, South Korea: South Korea has announced that it has signed a $1.6 billion arms deal with Egypt.

This marks South Korea's largest-ever arms export contract.

The office of President Moon Jae-in in Seoul said the agreement included providing K9 self-propelled howitzers, manufactured by Korea's Hanwha Defense, to Egypt.

Moon's office did not disclose other details on the agreement, and there was no comment from Egypt.

The South Korean announcement came two weeks after Egyptian leader Abdel Fattah el-Sissi met with Moon in Cairo, which was the first visit by a South Korean president to Egypt in 16 years, according to the state-run al-Ahram newspaper.

Egyptian Defense Minister General Mohamed Zaki was in South Korea on February 1 to attend the signing ceremony, Egypt's military said in a statement.

The Egyptian military also said South Korea and Egypt signed two memorandums of understanding on mutual military cooperation.

Egypt, one of the world's leading arms importers, has in recent years upgraded its military, striking massive arms deals with Western nations and Russia.

What were the northen Koreans operating?

I remember that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il was seriously ill and dying, but South Korea and USA conducted exercises near Yanping island.
North Korea fired after warning, South Korea used K9 to fight back, but K9 lost.
Because the self-propelled gun was defeated by the towed gun. Chinese netizens laughed at Koreans for a long time.

I recall that brief engagement and it occupied alot in western media and unfortunately the news they shared was highly doctored cuz they only mention ''North korea bombing islands unprovoked'' without mentioning the engagement and never did once just weeks of dragging NK leader's name as the second coming of dracula.. but months later I found out about the engagement

Does Egypt really need so much weapons? To defeat Israel
Don't you really have anything else to post this is also not in touch with reality.. Egypt-Israel are stragetic allies and have been that for over 50-years now and it is something you should spam on IRGC threads.. It is like saying why China doesn't defeat pakistan it makes no geopolitical sense or perhaps geopolitical illiteracy

I know they are allies, I just feel sorry for Nasser, for the Egypt I learned from history books.

at the rate Egyptians are accumulating debt from arms purchasing soon every Egyptian will have a fighter jet to go to office in.
now imagine a crooked used fighter jet salesman trying to stiff you with a jet fighter with 10000 hours on it for the price of new fighter jet. 😝

if it were strategic why did we just kick them out of the african union? Why is israel strongly opposing any military deal and the development in sinai? Why were they planning a train road that would challenge the suez canal but that failed due to the new train rail between ain el sokhna port and alexandria port? No military excercises between the two and we dont buy their weapons or even sell ours to them. They even rejected the sale of the iron dome to UAE because they feared its secrets would be leaked to us as we have a very close relationship with UAE. this is more like a cold peace than it is a strategic ally situation we all know a war is coming to sinai sooner or later.
