Seoul: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday held bilateral talks with his South Korean counterpart Jeong Kyeong-Doo where they reviewed defence cooperation between both countries.

During the meeting, both sides agreed that there was great potential to further boost defence ties.

"Had productive discussions with the Minister of National Defence of RoK (Republic of Korea), Jeong Kyeong-Doo during a bilateral meeting. The ongoing Defence cooperation engagements have made good progress in recent years. We agreed that there was great potential to further enhance these ties," Singh tweeted.
