Hanoi (VNA) – The Ministry of National Defence and the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army (VPA) support institutes, universities and research units of the Vietnamese and Indian armies to strengthen cooperation and share experience, a senior officer has said.

Senior Lieutenant General Pham Ngoc Minh, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the VPA, made the affirmation at a reception in Hanoi on May 29 for Major General Anil Dere, who is leading a delegation from the Indian National Defence University to Vietnam.

Cooperation in personnel training is one of the ways to promote comprehensive cooperative ties between the two nations, Minh said.

He expressed his hope that the visit would help Indian officers better understand about Vietnam and its foreign and defence policies, hence increasing mutual understanding and trust between the people and armies of Vietnam and India.-VNA
