Korea — Army and Air Force sign agreement to “reinforce interoperability”

Amid the fact that strength­en­ing inter­op­er­abil­i­ty is the most talked about in the mil­i­tary, the Third Army Corps Com­mand and the Air Force Oper­a­tions Com­mand struck hands on Mar. 22 to con­sol­i­date the two forces’ joint­ness.

Made through a three-month work­ing-lev­el col­lab­o­ra­tion and prepa­ra­tions, the agree­ment includ­ed many things such as reg­u­lar exchange vis­its between the two coun­tries’ com­mand­ing offi­cers, pri­or exchange of key agen­das, coop­er­a­tion to plan and con­duct joint oper­a­tions, and par­tic­i­pa­tion in major mil­i­tary exercises. 

In addi­tion, the two sides agreed to sup­port joint oper­a­tion-relat­ed edu­ca­tion for man­ag­ing offi­cers, to pay exchange vis­its to units sim­i­lar in func­tion, and to select the per­son­nel for their dis­tin­guished ser­vice in joint oper­a­tions and con­fer a reward to them. 

This agree­ment meant the imple­men­ta­tion of the Defense Ministry’s pol­i­cy to rein­force joint­ness and was made to fur­ther expand the exist­ing coop­er­a­tion between the two forces and to gen­er­ate a syn­er­gy effect on strength­en­ing inter­op­er­abil­i­ty and on using com­bat power. 

“The agree­ment between the Third Corps as a core unit to defend the cap­i­tal area and the Air Oper­a­tions Com­mand will be the touch­stone to strength­en joint­ness as well as improve joint oper­a­tions capa­bil­i­ties,” a Third Corps offi­cial expected.
