An official from the General Department of Politics under the Lao People’s Army has expressed hope to receive more assistance from Vietnam in personnel training.

Lieut. Col. Sombat Bunkhamkong, who led a delegation from the Lao department’s Organisation and Personnel Divisions to Vietnam , made the wish while meeting with Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Trong Nghia, deputy head of the Vietnam People’s Army’s General Department of Politics, in Hanoi on August 19.

At the reception, Nghia highlighted the effective cooperation between the two armies in the Party building and cadre training, and suggested the application of information technology in the field.

Vietnam and Laos should increase all-level delegation exchanges and share experience in carrying out political missions, he noted.-VNA
