Korean Navy's Historic Manila Visit Marks 70th Year of War Armistice

The Republic of Korea Navy Cruise Training Task Group (CTTG) arrived in Manila, marking a significant event on the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice agreement

The group, including the helicopter training ship ROKS Hansando and the combat support ship ROKS Hwacheon, berthed at Manila South Harbor on December 27. This visit symbolizes a commitment to maritime security and peace, as noted by CTTG Commander RDML Choong-ho Cho.

Strengthening Naval Ties

The CTTG's visit to Manila is not only a nod to the past but also a step toward enhancing military diplomacy and friendship between the Philippines and S.Korea. The visit includes a series of activities aimed at commemorating this significant historical event. 
Korea and Philippines Strengthen Ties with Naval Visit and Joint Exercises

Among these, the Korean Navy group will visit the Korean War memorial at Libingan ng mga Bayani, partaking in a solemn wreath-laying ceremony.

A Display of Maritime Prowess

In a showcase of strength and technological advancement, the CTTG will organize a Defense Industry Exhibition aboard the ROKS Hwacheon. This exhibition will allow Philippine Navy officers to witness Korea’s Navy Sea GHOST technology - a testament to the harmonization of manned and unmanned naval systems. 

The training group's visit also includes a passing exercise with the Philippine Navy's BRP Jose Rizal, reaffirming the enduring bond between the two navies.

Cultural Exchange and Shared History

The training group's visit is part of its 7th circumnavigation, traveling an impressive 30,000 nautical miles with 460 sailors onboard. The Manila port call, the group's 28th to the country, sets a record for Korean Navy port calls in Asian countries. 

This visit not only reflects shared military interests but also cultural connections, with joint cultural performances and tours strengthening the long-standing friendship between Korea and the Philippines.
