The Vietnamese and American armies should accelerate cooperation in rescue, army medical service, addressing post-war consequences, maritime security and ship-repairing in the near future, high-ranking officials from both nations have said.

Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, Lieutenant General Vo Van Tuan, and Deputy Commander of United States Pacific Command, Lieutenant General Thomas Conant, shared the view at a meeting in Hanoi on November 19.

They suggested the two national armies increase delegation exchanges, experience sharing and cooperation in areas of mutual interest./. VNA
