The Department of Foreign Relations under the Defence Ministry hosted a pre-Tet get-together with foreign military attaché corps in Hanoi on January 24.

Director of the department Major General Vu Chien Thang said in 2013 Vietnam deepened its cooperation with other nations and international organisations, which was contributed by foreign military and defence attachés posted in the country.

On behalf of the attendees, Indian Military Attaché Colonel Mullath Sri Kumar thanked the Vietnamese Defence Ministry for helping military attaché corps fulfil their duties.

He expressed hope that they will have more opportunities to conduct exchanges with Vietnamese military units to further promote mutual understanding and affiliation between armies of Vietnam and other countries.-VNA
