Military cooperation between Vietnam and Japan is on the right track, said Minister of National Defence General Phung Quang Thanh while receiving Japanese Vice Minister of Defence Shimojo Mitsu in Hanoi on Jan. 17.

The Japanese delegation, led by Shimojo, held talks with Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Chi Vinh, Deputy Minister of National Defence, earlier in the day.

Both sides agreed to foster ties through delegation exchanges, training and searching for cooperation opportunities in policy research, and search-and-rescue activities at sea./.
