At the talks, Gen. Giang expressed his pleasure at the visit of the RoK delegation and the logistics cooperation between the two militaries. Vietnam and the RoK officially established diplomatic ties in 1992. On the basis of the bilateral relations, the two countries' militaries also founded defense ties. Since the two countries upgraded their relations to a strategic partnership in 2009, they have expanded the bilateral cooperation in various fields, and reached a lot of practical achievements, he stressed.

At the talks

In June 2006, the two sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding on mutual support in UN peacekeeping operations and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. This is a basis for the two militaries' arms and services to implement the agreed cooperation contents, he added.

Gen. Giang also hoped that the cooperation between the two militaries' logistics sectors would develop more intensively and practically through the visit.

Expressing his thanks to the host for the warm welcome, Gen. Lee Jeong Keun affirmed that in his position, he will do his utmost to realize the MoU's contents on logistics support. In the short run, the RoK Army Logistics Command wants to promote logistics cooperation and presents several logistics equipment to the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defense.

Both sides agreed to continue promoting delegation exchange and sharing of information and experience in logistics management according to the real demand of each side.

After the talks, the RoK delegation visited and had a meeting with Joint-Stock Company 26 under the General Department of Logistics and Factory Z131 under the General Department of Defense Industry.
