CAIRO – 5 October 2017: The charge d'Affaires of the embassy of the Republic of Korea in Egypt, Byung Kwan Kim, said Korea and Egypt actively expanded military cooperation this year through the visits of high-ranking government officials.

He added that Egypt's keenness to inaugurate the defense attaché’s office in Seoul, despite all challenging circumstances, reflects the advanced level of the bilateral relations, the Korean embassy in Cairo stated on Wednesday.

The Republic of Korea embassy in Egypt celebrated the

National Day of Korea

and the Armed Forces Day on Sunday night.

A number of high-level Egyptian officials attended the celebration, like Sherif Mohamed Habib, Governor of Beni Suef; Alaa Fahmy, chairman of the Egypt and Korea Friendship Association; Ossama Heikel, chairman of the Media and Culture Committee; and Yasser Morad, assistant minister of foreign affairs, the statement added.


“Mutual political and diplomatic ties were further cemented during the recent couple of years. After 2013, through three bilateral summits held on the sidelines of 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 72) in New York, USA, and the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China, the ties have been upgraded to the Comprehensive Cooperative Partnership Level,” the statement reported.

According to the statement, the charge d' Affaires said, “His Excellency President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi's official visit to Korea in March last year was a landmark in the history of the bilateral relations that extended the cooperation to an unprecedented stage. It covered not only economic and development, but also educational, cultural and other fields,” he concluded.
