Egypt's Top Commander Says Ties with Pyongyang Severed

Tuesday, 12 Sep 2017 10:10 AM

CAIRO (AP) — A South Korean news agency reports that Egypt's defense minister has announced it has cut military ties with North Korea during a visit to Seoul.

Yonhap quoted the South Korean Defense Ministry on Monday as saying Egypt's Defense Minister Sedki Sobhi told his counterpart Song Young-moo that Egypt has "already severed all military ties with North Korea."

"Egypt will actively cooperate with South Korea against North Korea acts that threaten peace," the agency quoted Sobhi as saying.

Last month, the United States cut or delayed some $300 million in military and economic aid over human rights concerns and ties to North Korea.

This is Sohbi's first meeting with Song, which came after a South Korean-Egypt memorandum of understanding on defense cooperation was signed in March.
