South Korea will deliver a submarine built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering to Indonesia.

South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo plans to discuss issues seeking closer ties with Indonesia as part of efforts to expand its overall arms trade.  He will be meeting his Indonesian counterpart Ryamizard Ryacudu in Seoul during the ceremony to deliver the submarine, Yonhap reported Tuesday.

Indonesia has ordered three diesel-electric attack submarines from South Korea.

It has signed a separate deal to buy South Korea's T-50 supersonic trainer jets in addition to a bilateral partnership on Seoul's KF-X program to develop its own advanced fighters.

The ministers will have discussions on "ways for expanding South Korea's superb weapons system, including the additional export of three submarines Indonesia needs," said Song's ministry. Also on agenda is North Korea, it added.

"The ministers will express deep concerns about North Korea's nuclear and missile threats that are increasing recently and discuss ways for close coordination," it said.
