Peru will Take over South Korea's A-37 Dragonfly Aircraft

By Jung Sung-ki

Peru will take over South Korea's A-37 Dragonfly light attack aircraft Friday (Korean standard time) in a ceremony at an air force base near its capital of Lima, the Ministry of National Defense here said. Last year, South Korea offered eight A-37 jets to Peru for free as part of efforts to improve bilateral ties and defense cooperation. The two nations established diplomatic ties in 1963. The ceremony will be presided over by Peru's Defense Minister Rafael Rey. Kim Ju-won, head of the South Korean defense ministry's arms and resources maintenance bureau, will attend the ceremony. Kim will ask Peru to cooperate with South Korean defense companies as the South American nation is seeking to modernize its armed forces..............KoreaTimes
