President Yoweri Museveni’s son, Major General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, visited the South Korean capital Seoul South Korea to seek for a defense cooperation.

Muhoozi who commands the elite UPDF Special Forces Command, held discussions on military cooperation and training in special operations with senior military officials in the Asian country.

The SFC commander, according to Chris Magezi, the elite unit spokesperson, led a delegation to continue the relationship Presidents Museveni and Park Geun Hye have shared before.

In one of the pictures shared by SFC, Muhoozi met the Commander of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Army Special Warfare Command, Lt. General Chang Kyeong Seok, at Incheon headquarters.

Here, he was showed around the ROK Special Warfare Training School by the Commandant of the school, Brig. Gen. Kim Yong Duk.

Museveni later said he was impressed by the airborne operations, sniper skills, swimming by the ROK navy seals, and taekwondo exhibited by South Korean soldiers.

UPDF Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Katumba Wamala, also visited South Korea in October to attend ceremonies to commemorate their Army Day.

In June 2016, Muhoozi held talks with a visiting security delegation of South Korean President Park Geun-hye at State House Entebbe.

The security delegation was led by the minister of Presidential Security Services; Gen. (retired) Park Heung Ryul and the commander of advanced protection, Col. Lee Young Kwan.

Gen. Heung Ryul and Muhoozi discussed training, intelligence sharing and the counter-terrorism fight against global terrorist threats.
