Da Nang (VNA) – A vessel of the Royal Brunei Navy arrived at Tien Sa Port in Da Nang on October 2, beginning a three-day friendship visit to the central city.

The KDB Daruttaqwa, skippered by Commander Mohammad Azrin Bin Haji Mahmud and carrying 76 officers and crew members on board, will visit the city from October 2-4.

The ship was welcomed by representatives from the city’s Department of External Affairs, border guard force and military command; the Commands of the fifth Military Region and the third Naval Region, and the Defence Ministry’s Department of Exteral Relations.

The Bruneian naval officers will pay courtesy calls to the Commands of the fifth Military Region and the third Naval Region, as well as leaders of the city’s People’s Committee. They will also exchange experience and take part in a friendly football match with Vietnamese officers.

The visit aims to strengthen friendship, cooperation, and mutual understanding between the two countries’ armies and people.

Last month, Tien Sa Port also welcomed the HMCS Calgary ship and the MV Asterix commercial container ship of the Royal Canadian Navy which paid a five-day visit to Da Nang. –VNA
