The Vietnam People’s Army (VPA) and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) should increase cooperation and exchanges of delegations to learn from each other’s experiences in the time to come.

This was the shared view, made at a meeting in Hanoi on December 3, of Senior Lieutenant General Ngo Xuan Lich, Director of VPA’s General Department of Politics and Lieutenant General Chai Shaoliang, Director of the Political Department of PLA’s Chengdu Military Region.

Chai Shaoliang is leading a regional border guard delegation on a working visit to Vietnam .

Border guards should be a key component to the building of cooperation, contributing to peace, stability and development in the Vietnam-China border area, they said.

The two sides agreed that in recent years, the two countries’ border guard forces have positively cooperated in joint patrols, exchanging experiences and organising art exchanges that have contributed to national border security and safety.-VNA
