Australia observes United States-Republic Of Korea naval exercise

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Aus­tralian Defence Force has today observed the Unit­ed States-Repub­lic of Korea naval exer­cise in the Yel­low Sea.
This naval exer­cise under­lines the Unit­ed States – Repub­lic of Korea Alliance and con­tributes to peace and secu­ri­ty on the Kore­an Penin­su­la.

Aus­tralia has observed this exer­cise in our capac­i­ty as a con­tribut­ing nation to the Unit­ed Nations Com­mand Mil­i­tary Armistice Com­mis­sion (UNCMAC).

Australia’s Defence Attaché to the Repub­lic of Korea serves as a liai­son offi­cer to UNCMAC and – along with liai­son offi­cers from the Unit­ed King­dom and France – observed the exer­cise afloat the USS George Wash­ing­ton car­ri­er group. 

UNCMAC plays an impor­tant role in super­vis­ing the Armistice Agree­ment that end­ed the Kore­an War. 

The involve­ment of UNCMAC liai­son offi­cers in this exer­cise high­lights the impor­tance of its role in super­vis­ing the Armistice Agreement. 

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Neu­tral Nations Super­vi­so­ry Com­mis­sion to the Armistice Agree­ment also observed the exercise.
