Korea Donates Patrol Vehicles to Peru’s National Police

(LIP-ir) — By the end of February, Peru’s national police will receive one hundred police patrol cars that are to be donated by the Republic of Korea, announced Peru’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Antonio García Belaunde.

In an agreement between the two country’s presidents, Korea agreed to donate fifty Hyundai Tucson SUVs and fifty Kia Sportage SUVs to Peru.

Minister García Belaunde explained that Peru’s President, Alan Garcia and his Korean counterpart Roh Moo-hyun had made the agreement at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Sydney, Australia earlier this year.

Peru’s Andina News Agency reported that García Belaunde received a letter from Hahn Young-Hee, the Korean ambassador, written by Korea’s president and addressed to Alan Garcia, confirming the donation of the one hundred SUVs.

This gesture is tangible evidence of the excellent relationship the two countries have as well as the high level of understanding that has been reached, said Belaunde. He added that a free trade agreement would soon be signed with Korea.
