Delegates at the opening ceremony

Over the past time, leaders and people of the countries have attached importance to strengthening the great friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation. The two sides are always determined that the bilateral defense ties are an important pillar in the Vietnam - Laos relationship and develop in a more intensive, practical, and effective manner. The defense relations have effectively proved its role as a bridge connecting the two defense ministries and militaries.

Following the outcomes of defense relations activities and success of previous courses, the Department of Foreign Relations hosts this class in order to actualize the cooperation plan in 2023 reached by the two defense ministries. This refresher course will continue to affirm the bilateral defense cooperation as an important pillar in the great friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Laos.
