17:09 | 09/07/2019

VGP – The 2019 Viet Nam-India Bilateral Army Exercise (VINBAX) is taking place in Ha Noi from July 8-14 with the attendance of 30 officers from both countries.

Deputy Director of the Viet Nam Department of Peacekeeping Operations Col.Nguyen Nhu Canh expressed his belief that the VINBAX 2019 will be useful for promoting Viet Nam’s capacity, particularly when it is preparing to further engage in UN peacekeeping operations, including deploying another level-2 field hospital and a sapper unit.

He said following the success of the first VINBAX, held in India in 2018, this year’s drill is a good occasion for the two countries to continue exchanging knowledge about and experience in deployment, management and direction activities and the settlement of situations that peacekeepers may face at UN missions.

It will help improve the effectiveness of their participation in multidimensional peacekeeping missions, he added.

In addition, the exercise is a contribution to the mutual understanding, friendship and cooperation in UN peacekeeping between two countries, he added, noting that it is held amidst the fruitful cooperation in the field and growing bilateral defence ties. 

India has strongly supported Viet Nam to take part in peacekeeping activities by inviting Vietnamese officers to join in peacekeeping training courses or seminars it organised./.
