Vietnam, RoK hold defence policy dialogue

The 8th defence policy dialogue at deputy ministerial level between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea was held in Seoul on Thursday under the co-chair of Deputy Defence Minister Nguyen Chi Vinh and his RoK counterpart Park Jae-min.

At the event, the two sides exchanged views on the global and regional security situations and international issues of common concern. They shared the satisfaction at the bilateral defence cooperation in the recent past, and agreed to build on the outcomes, with a focus on mutual high-level visits, defence industry, settlement of war consequences, maritime security and United Nations peacekeeping activities. The deputy ministers agreed to promote joint work on several new aspects, such as cyber security, cultural and art exchange, and military and high-performance sports.

Vietnam reiterated its support of the RoK's responsible participation in multilateral security mechanisms, thus contributing to peace, stability and development in the region and the world. The RoK pledged support for Vietnam in preparing for and organising defence-security events in 2020 when the country serves as Chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
