In the letter, General Giang, on behalf of the Central Military Commission and the Ministry of National Defense, wishes all officers and soldiers of the VPA participating in training, competitions, organization, and dissemination of events at the International Army Games 2021 and the International Military-Technical Forum “Army-2021” all the best.

He emphasized that joining the International Army Games 2021 and the International Military-Technical Forum “Army-2021” is an important defense relations activity, contributing to strengthening exchanges and cooperation between the VPA and armed forces of other countries as well as the traditional and close-knit diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the Russian Federation. It is also an opportunity for the troops to demonstrate ability, bravery, willpower, and determination to fight and to win, in which everyone is a typical representative of the VPA. The events are also the chances for the Vietnamese military to strengthen exchange and accumulation of experience in training, event organization, and maintenance and service of weapons and equipment.

Praising the efforts of the Vietnamese military contingent in overcoming difficulties during training for the events, the defense minister asks all teams and individuals of the contingent to uphold the virtue of “Uncle Ho's soldiers,” promote solidarity, unity, self-confidence, and creativity.

He also urged participating troops to strictly observe competition regulations and overcome difficulties to gain the highest results, which contributes to honoring the images of the heroic VPA as well as the country and people of Vietnam in international integration and development.

Ending the letter, General Giang once again wishes the Vietnamese contingent health, safety, and success.
