South Korea has used a political meeting with Australia to show a sign of “comprehensive strategic partnership”

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is in Australia’s capital of Canberra, as the two nations upgrade their ties to “comprehensive strategic partnership” status.

High on the agenda was a new $1 billion deal – under which Korean defence company Hanwha will provide 30 self-propelled howitzer artillery weapons to Australia as well as 15 ammunition supply vehicles and radars to detect enemy artillery.

The new vehicles will be able to quickly fire and move to avoid enemy counterattacks.

“It is one of several projects that will modernise the Australian Army, ensuring it continues to maintain a capability advantage now, and into the future,” the minister said.

“We are committed to keeping our region safe while protecting our interests in a rapidly changing global environment.”
