Vietnamese, Laos defence ministries to consolidate traditional bonds

Monday, 02 February 2015

A military co-operation plan for 2013 was agreed and signed in Ha Noi yesterday by Viet Nam's Minister of Defence General Phung Quang Thanh and his Lao counterpart Douangchay Phichit, who is also the country's Deputy Prime Minister. 

At the signing ceremony, Thanh stressed the plan would allow for the consolidation of the traditional friendship between the two nations and their armies, and was a mark of the special solidarity between them.

Douangchay Phichit said that he highly appreciated the hard work undertaken between the two ministries of defence last year, and believed that the continued co-operation would reap further rewards in the coming year. —
