General Ngo Xuan Lich

The visit is part of the activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Vietnam-France diplomatic ties and five years of the establishment of their strategic partnership. It also aims to realize the agreements reached during the France visit by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong in March 2018.

The visit is expected to enhance mutual understanding and trust between the two nations and militaries, as well as to contribute to peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world, and promote the Vietnam-France defense cooperation through specific contents and measures, in part backing the strategic partnership between the two countries.
