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.

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.

Unlikely outcome in the near term but who knows a worldwide economical collapse 40-50 years down the road changing political dynamics but in the short term and in this format a change is unlikely...

There is a line of alliances which will be intact until the US wins WW3 and ww3 won't happen until world economy collapses and economy collapse won't happen outside natural disaster then the US will turn on allies because they will become expandables and won't serve any purpose any longer as there counter weight foes are no more.. All this will come to be one after the other... Once the US has made sure it has won and then it will turn on allies but it won't happen before that...

Does Egypt really need so much weapons? To defeat Israel, they need balls first.

why we would fight them …!?
we fought them … defeated them …. Got our land back … we choosed peace.

Now please tell me …. Would you raise your voice against your Turkish masters who are strategic allies to Israel 🥲
I know you feel inferior to the Turks but at least have some dignity to TALK 😒

you as a keyboard warrior …. Can you tell me are the US drones still killing your citizens from your skies and on your soil without your permission or you have the balls to SPEAK… just speak and rais your voice

Israel is not TR's strategic partner. We haven't started to buy(or sell) billions of cubic meters of natural gas to Israel, like Egypt yet. To do this, some conditions must first be met such as EEZ. The other trade volume between the two countries is based on the free market and has no strategic value or any state bounded structure. Apart from that, political relations have already been turned upside down. France probably has killed more 10 times Muslims than Israel and is now its strategic partner with long-term loans over french made systems to the Egyptian armed forces modernisations. Egypt also opened its territory to this country in the fight against terrorism. Likewise, Russia and the USA have same situation with Israel, and these countries also have relations with the Egyptian army on a strategic scale, and and have special places in critical areas such as nuclear energy, just like Turkiye... To be honest, such populist discourses are just nonsense, and there is no point in demagogy on against of a country.

If I have to say smthng about topic: The Korean K9 is a very successful self-propelled howitzer system. Similar works in Turkiye are based on the same infrastructure. Starting from this infrastructure, we have finally reached that FIRTINA-II variant. I have no doubt that Egypt will create a unique and very successful system by making its own customization through this system.

The only gas deal that is active with israel is we take their gas to our facilities to put them on ships to be sent in europe we take money for the work of the facilities which israel doesnt have and tgey take the money for the gas payed by europe. For turkey their foreign policy is laughable one day they would curse on how bad israel is and killing civillians and the next day we want the israeli president to visit turkey for economic deals and how israel is so proffesional. One day they would say how muslims need to unite to crush the states of france and israel who are killing muslims daily while turkey dammed the rivers leading to MUSLIM countrues and sent refugees from said country to belarus to pressure the EU. One day they would curse on sisi on how hes a dictator and how bad he is and look at the prision conditions and so while erdogan was killing his economy and inventing his own ideology and prisioning anyone who disagrees with him and firing anyone workinh in banks because he disagreed with the erdoganic ideology which saw the lira rise to 18. Iam not going to even mention the militias that are being funded in libya who kill muslims and only advance on money. Ih nothing against the people just erdogan and his party which wrecked havoc across the region spreading lies and having a twisted head leading to turkey with no freinds. Speaking of EEZ tgeres a deal with libyan goverment under el dabiba which outright violates egyptian EZZ and didnt gain any international support because of its violations to greek egyptian and crypoit EEZ.

You are half right on that.. that ignorant guy does not know that Egypt is the only nation in the region that has facilities to liquefy natural gas .. Usrael does not.. so Egypt signd a deal with it to import its natural Gas and liquefy it for export.. Egypt wins a lot in this deal.. it buys the Gas from Usrael at a low price process it and sells it at international price..

You may tell these to the Syrians.

For me, I just wish that the Egyptians have enough food to feed themselves.
Maybe you need to educate yourself a bit more before posting your ignorance here..

Here is a thread that might enlighten you..
