The US concluded a deal with South Korea to supply missiles worth $ 1,4 billion

A $ 1,4 billion deal with South Korea awaiting approval by the US Congress includes the supply of 136 Patriot (PAC-3) manufactured by Lockheed Martin, as well as supporting systems for Raytheon missiles, according to IA RUSKOR referring to The Washington Business Journal.

According to the Defense Cooperation Agency, which coordinates foreign military sales between the Pentagon and its allies, the supplies will allow South Korea to repel the threats of low-flying ballistic missiles and reduce dependence on US military units to maintain stability in the region. It will also increase the interaction between the land and missile defense forces stationed at sea and the parts of the United States deployed in the region.

In June, it was reported that PAC-3 missiles and Thaad systems were considered by South Korea among the most acceptable purchases. At the time, the US conducted an analysis with South Korean officials to "help them choose a solution."
