Russia, VN tighten bilaterial defense cooperation

VGP - Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Viet Nam People’s Army Sen. Lt. Gen. Pham Ngoc Minh in Ha Noi on October 9 received Commander of the Engineering Troops of the Russian Armed Forces Lt. Gen. Yuri Stavitsky .

At the reception, Yuri Stavitsky affirmed that Russia is willing to support and share experience with Vietnam in the participation in peacekeeping missions, including providing the country with consultations on deploying a sapper company to a suitable peacekeeping mission in the time coming time. 

In turn, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Viet Nam People’s Army Sen. Lt. Gen. Pham Ngoc Minh said that the two countries’ Defence Ministries signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in the United Nations’ peacekeeping activities in 2017.

However, cooperation in this field has failed to match bilateral potential, he stated.

Therefore, he suggested both sides step up defence delegation exchanges, information and experience sharing and personnel training to raise the capacity of forces participating in peacekeeping missions.

It is also necessary to boost collaboration in the military engineering field, he added.
