At a conference hosted by the Military Zone 2 on July 9, it was also agreed that the Vietnamese side will build a training range for Laos’ Division 3 and complete the houses they built for welfare beneficiary families in northern Laos.

Vinh said the defence ministry will create optimal conditions for Military Zone 2 to fully implement the contents of its collaboration agreement with the Lao side.
