During their stay in Da Nang, the Japanese delegation will visit a Vietnamese Naval vessel and meet with Viet Nam’s Naval Region 3 Command and Da Nang authorities, and take a city tour.

The visit aims to promote exchanges and strengthen cooperative relations between the two sides’ navy forces as well as the bilateral defense cooperation relations between Viet Nam and Japan.

Last September, the Japan maritime defense force sent the Kuroshio submarine to Vietnam’s Cam Ranh Port, a deepwater base on the central coast, for a four-day visit, marking the first time the sub had docked in Vietnamese waters.
