Japan Coast Guard Training Vessel KOJIMA with 87 officers and crew members on board docked at the Da Nang International Port on July 25 to start a four-day visit to Vietnam. The visit is taking place at a time when the relations between Vietnam and Japan in general and the bilateral defence ties in particular are continuously reinforced.

The visit is one of specific activities to implement the agreements reached by leaders of the two nations’ Parties, States and defence ministries, aiming to further deepen the bilateral defence partnership.
