 Australia and the Republic of Korea participated in Exercise Haedoli-Wallaby, a bilateral anti-submarine warfare exercise, from November 1-3.

 
The biennial exercise demonstrates a shared commitment by Australia and the Republic of Korea to regional security and security of the Korean peninsula.
 
Royal Australian Navy frigates HMA Ships Parramatta and Melbourne and a Royal Australian Air Force P-8 maritime patrol aircraft participated with six Republic of Korea ships, a submarine and a maritime surveillance aircraft from the Republic of Korea Navy.
 
Australian assets are in the region participating in Indo-Pacific Endeavour 17, a joint task group deployment focusing on maritime security and cooperation.
 
Commander of the Joint Task Group Captain Johnathan Earley, said the exercise reinforced common ideals between maritime nations.
 
“As two regional middle powers that share common democratic values as well as security interests, Haedoli-Wallaby is an important activity for Australia and the Republic of Korea,” Captain Earley said.
 
“During the exercise, we strengthened our core sea-based maritime skills, while working together on briefings, table-top exercises, and international engagement activities ashore.
 
“Australia’s defence relationship with the Republic of Korea is an important component of the broader bilateral relationship, and we welcome the opportunity for further cooperation.”
