U.S. Approves Weapon Sales to Republic of Korea

The U.S. State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Republic of Korea. The country has requested to buy two MK 15 MOD 25 Phalanx Close-In Weapons System (CIWS) Block 1B Baseline 2 (IB2) systems; and 4,000 rounds, 20MM cartridge API linked.
 
The request also includes spare parts; other support equipment; ammunition; books and other publications; software; training; engineering technical assistance and other technical assistance; and other related elements of programme and logistical support. The estimated total cost is US$39 million.
 
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying the U.S. Congress of this possible sale recently.
This proposed sale will support the foreign policy goals and national security objectives of the U.S. by improving the security of a non-NATO ally that is a force for political stability and economic progress in the Pacific region.
 
The proposed sale will improve the Republic of Korea’s capability to meet current and future threats. Korea will use the systems aboard its first KDX III Batch II Class ship to provide it with effective means of detecting and defending itself against incoming airborne threats.
