European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen are visiting South Korea to attend a summit with President Yoon Suk Yeol. The three leaders are expected to discuss several issues such as trade agreements, the war in Ukraine, and North Korea’s banned weapons programs. The EU and South Korea will express their joint support for the rules-based international order. South Korea is the world’s ninth-largest arms exporter and has sent humanitarian aid to Ukraine and sold tanks and howitzers to Poland, but has a long-standing policy of not providing weapons to active conflict zones. During his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Hiroshima at the G7 summit, President Yoon promised additional non-lethal aid to Ukraine, including demining equipment and ambulances. The EU leaders’ visit to South Korea will provide an opportunity to enhance cooperation in various fields, such as economy, health, science and technology, and regional and global issues.
