Hanoi (VNA) – With the permission of the Vietnamese Prime Minister, three vessels of the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force docked at Cam Rank international port, the central province of Khanh Hoa, for technical activities on October 10 and 11.

The ships consist of helicopter carrier Kaga, guided missile destroyer Ikazuchi, and submarine Shoryu with a total of 635 officers and sailors, the Quan doi Nhan dan (People’s Army) newspaper reported.

They made the port call to replenish fuel, food and freshwater and carry out other technical activities during their training programme.

Military and non-military agencies of Vietnam coordinated closely to meet the Japanese side’s demand, which reflected Vietnam’s capacity of providing logistics and technical services for international ships arriving at its ports.

Amid complex developments of COVID-19, relevant agencies of Vietnam also worked to prevent virus transmission in line with regulations./.
