SEOUL, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's defense ministry said Tuesday it has invited a group of U.S. military officers in charge of religious affairs to a Seoul temple for a culture program.

Col. Matthew S. Wysocki, chaplain of the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK), and Col. Kim Kap-young, director of the ministry's religious policy division, will take part in the event together to be hosted by the Bongeunsa Buddhist temple in southern Seoul later in the day.

They will be accompanied by two dozen related officers and specialists.

The ministry said it has arranged the unprecedented culture program for the USFK's chaplain team in order to introduce Korean culture and promote exchanges between the two sides.

"Cooperation between South Korean and U.S. military religious officers is expected to expand further through the Korean culture experience event this time," Kim said.
