South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol received an honor guard welcome Sunday on a trip to the United Arab Emirates as he hopes to expand its military sales here. Yoon arrived at Qasr Al Watan palace in Abu Dhabi and was greeted by Emirati leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. An honor guard of traditionally dressed Emiratis greeted Yoon and his wife.
A military band played the South Korean and Emirati national anthems. South Korea’s trade with the UAE is into the billions of dollars worth of cars, material and other goods. Before Yoon's trip, officials described the visit as seeking to solidify the ties between the two countries.
