US delivers 6 coastal patrol boats to Vietnam

Six 45-foot Metal Shark patrol boats were handed over by US Ambassador Ted Osius to the Vietnam coast guard Monday.

The move represents deepening cooperation in maritime law enforcement and humanitarian assistance in Vietnam's territorial waters and exclusive economic zone.

These patrols boats will help the Vietnam coast guard carry out coastal patrols and law enforcement against smuggling, human trafficking, piracy, armed robbery of ships, and illegal fishing.
