Hanoi (VNA) –  Lieutenant General Phan Van Giang, Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army and Deputy Defence Minister, hosted a reception in Hanoi on April 27 for visiting Air Force Chief of Staff of Indonesia General Hadi Tjahjanto.

During the meeting, Giang highlighted the traditional friendship between the two countries, which was founded by President Ho Chi Minh and President Suharto, and nurtured by generations of leaders of the two countries.

He lauded the cooperation between Vietnam's Air Defence-Air Force Service and the Indonesian National Air Force over the past time, with the maintenance of all-level visits, the sharing of experience, and meetings on the sidelines of multilateral forums.

Giang hopes the two sides will continue to further promote collaboration by increasing all-level delegation exchanges, and sharing their experience in repairing and maintaining aircraft and air force equipment, training pilots and aviation rescue, among others.

Leaders of the Defence Ministry and the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army will make it easy for the two forces to foster links in the coming time, he affirmed.

For his part, General Hadi Tjahjanto promised to do his best to promote affiliation between the two countries’ air forces in particular and defence cooperation in general, for stability and peace in each country, the region and the world at large.-VNA
