Vinh said Vietnam and the UK have fostered long-standing friendship and all-around cooperation, including in defence, especially since the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding on bilateral defence cooperation in November 2011.
He thanked the UK Defence Ministry for assisting Vietnam in launching a Level-2 field hospital in South Sudan and training, especially English language, for officers to the United Nations peacekeeping mission.
In order to develop bilateral defence ties into a pillar in Vietnam – UK strategic partnership, Vinh suggested facilitating all-level visits, particularly high-level ones, to raise mutual understanding and collaboration.
