Korea and Australia deepens ties on defense logistics

S. Kore­an and Aus­tralian defense min­istries had “the 2nd S. Korea-Aus­tralia logis­tics coop­er­a­tion con­fer­ence” in Can­ber­ra, Aus­tralia on Feb. 21 to dis­cuss ways to improve their mutu­al logis­tics coop­er­a­tion.

Kore­an Army Maj. Gen. Cheon Dong-un, the direc­tor of the Min­istry of Defense Logis­tics Man­age­ment Depart­ment, and his coun­ter­part Aus­tralian Air Force Maj. Gen. Mar­garet Staib had an in-depth dis­cus­sion of the issue about the need to build and pro­mote the data­base about whether the two coun­tries can sup­ply their ammu­ni­tion to each oth­er both in wartime and peace­time.

This was the sec­ond time after 2010 when the S. Korea-Aus­tralia Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing on mutu­al logis­tics coop­er­a­tion was con­clud­ed. In this meet­ing, the two gen­er­als had a time to under­stand each other’s logis­tics sys­tem and pol­i­cy. They also exchanged opin­ions on ways to use their equip­ment and sup­plies in com­mon and to improve the effi­cien­cy of their defense logis­tics man­age­ment includ­ing equip­ment sub­stan­tial­i­ty.

“This con­fer­ence helped the two sides seek ways to enhance the effi­cien­cy of the man­age­ment of mil­i­tary sup­plies and to pro­mote the bilat­er­al logis­tics coop­er­a­tion,” a Kore­an Defence offi­cial said.
