A Vietnamese delegation is in the U.S. for a working visit, which includes a defense policy dialogue that seeks to strengthen bilateral ties.
The delegation, led by Deputy Defence Minister Sent. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Chi Vinh, is scheduled to meet with high ranking officials of the US Deparments of States and of Defense, and the Congress, during the visit between Sep. 27 and Oct. 3.
The two sides hopes to strengthen ties in military medicine, the settlement of post-war consequences, information sharing in service of search and rescue, and humanitarian aid, during the policy dialogue, the fifth between them since 2010.
Experience in undertaking UN peace-keeping missions and search for soldiers missing in action will be discussed, as will regional and international issues of mutual concern.
