Romania’s defence minister Angel Tilvar made the announcement as his South Korean counterpart, Shin Won-sik was in Romania for talks. Minister Shin is expected to travel to Poland for talks as well.

The procurement is Romania’s largest such purchase in seven years and will foster closer defence and arms cooperation between the two countries.-shp/adj/dl (Pix:DVIDS)
