Giang is leading a Vietnamese delegation to pay an official visit to Russia and to attend the closing ceremony of the International Army Games 2019, running from August 13-19, at the invitation of Gerasimov.

Both sides also agreed to accelerate the signing of documents to enhance cooperation, comprising the joint vision on defence cooperation during 2019-2023 and boost collaboration in military tactics, legistation, medicine, and training.

At the event, Giang said the Vietnamese Party, State and Government always attach importance to developing ties with Russia.

He said bilateral cooperative relations have witnessed significant breakthroughs, and been deepened in various sectors, partly thanks to the two defence ministries agreeing to hold 70 external activities, 12 of which are being held in the framework of the Vietnam-Russia Year and Russia-Vietnam Year events during 2019-2020.

For his part, the Russian official said Vietnam is a traditional friend of Russia, and their sound relations have been proven over a long time.

Russia thinks highly of the proactiveness of the strategic dialogues as well as agreements reached between leaders of both sides, he said.

Describing the delegation’s visit as an important activity to mark the Vietnam-Russia Year and Russia-Vietnam Year, Gerasimov expressed his hope it will make significant contributions to promoting bilateral defence cooperation, which is a pillar in the Vietnam-Russia partnership.
