NATO and South Korea have signed a new partnership agreement that sets the framework for cooperation and political dialogue.

Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoana and the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Kim Hyoung-zhin signed the third Individual Partnership Cooperation Programme (IPCP) at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, according to the Alliance in a release.

“The new partnership programme continues to promote political dialogue and practical cooperation in a number of joint priority areas,  including cyber defence, non proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and Science for Peace and Security.

The Republic of Korea has been a valuable contributor to the Alliance’s stabilisation efforts in Afghanistan. The Provincial Reconstruction Team, led by the Republic of Korea, played a significant role in the reconstruction of the Parwan province. The Republic of Korea continues to be a significant contributor in support of the security and socio-economic development of Afghanistan.”  

The signature of the Individual Partnership Cooperation Programme follows fourteen years of progressive engagement from a dialogue that was initiated in 2005, say NATO.
