As many as 63 military doctors and health equipment will be sent to South Sudan to take over a field hospital of the United Kingdom.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Mr. Khare expected that Viet Nam will deploy a high-quality hospital that can effectively contribute to the UN’s peacekeeping activities, expressing his hope that the nation will make more contributions to the UN’s important mission.

The see-off ceremony will be organized on October 1 at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
