Hanoi (VNA) – A working group from the Military Zone 2 High Command has made a visit to the High Commands of Phongsaly, Udomxay, Bokeo and Infantry Division 3 of the Lao People’s Armed Forces to discuss measures to strengthen the special solidarity between the two countries.

During the visit from April 24-30, the two sides sought ways to foster their collaboration among border guard forces of the Military Zone 2 and northern localities of Laos, thus preventing outside forces to undermine the special solidarity and friendship between Vietnam and Laos.

The Vietnamese side informed the hosts on major outcomes of military external relations between the Military Zone 2 and Laos’ northern localities, while asking for their support for the Military Zone 2’s units posted in the localities to fulfill their international tasks.

During its stay, the group also inspected the operation of Vietnamese units performing international missions in Laos’ northern localities.-VNA
