PANO - The Ministries of National Defence of Vietnam and China co-hosted the second Vietnam-China Border Defence Friendship Exchange Program in the Vietnamese province of Lao Cai and Chinese province of Yunnan from May 15th to 18th.

The exchange has a special meaning because it was the first meeting between the two defence ministers at the shared border in the 65-year history of the Vietnam-China diplomatic relations.

Exchange activities organized during the four-day event are to send a message to the two peoples to build a shared border of peace, friendship, stability and development.

The People's Army Newspapers Online would like to present images of the event.
