* On the same day, Senior Lieutenant General Pham Ngoc Minh, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army welcomed Yoshito Sengoku, former Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary and representatives from Japan’s Media Gain Co., Ltd.

General Minh underlined that their visit to Vietnam this time will pave the way for further cooperation on natural disaster prevention and control, and search and rescue missions between the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defense and Japan.

Vietnam is often considered to be taking the brunt of climate change and can experience a range of potential natural disasters. The Vietnamese Government gives top priority to natural calamity response. Thus, the country hopes to receive assistance from other countries, especially those with experiences and capabilities in this area, like Japan, to minimize calamity consequences and losses.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sengoku highly valued achievements of the bilateral relations over the past time and emphasized that Japan will actively support Vietnam in fields of search and rescue, information technology and training for junior military officers.
