The visit is made at the invitation of Myanmar Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Sen. Gen. Min Aung Hlaing.

Giang’s visit aims to further enhance defence ties with Myanmar and discuss common policies and mechanism for cooperation, contributing to consolidating the comprehensive partnership between the two countries.

Over the past several years, Viet Nam and Myanmar have forged strong bilateral defence cooperation in multiple areas, particularly following the visit to Vietnam by Sen. Gen. Min Aung Hlaing in March 2017 and the visit to Myanmar by Defence Minister Gen. Ngo Xuan Lich in July the same year.

Competent authorities from both sides have been actively implementing agreements reached by the two defence officials during the visits in various fields, including delegation exchange, exchange of young military officers, personnel training, defence industry and military medicines./.
