The Japan Joint Staff (JJS) of the Japan Self-Defence Forces on July 3 also thanked the Vietnamese Government for helping the anti-submarine patrol aircraft.

"We sincerely appreciate your kindness to offer help when we were facing difficulties. We will never forget our strong ties. Thank you, Vietnam," the JJS said in a Twitter video.

 

The aircraft, with 19 crew members, was on its way home following an anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden in the Middle East and in need of refueling to help complete its 10,000km journey.

While no country let them enter due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam had agreed to receive the P-3C at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City for refueling.

On June 29, the aircraft returned to Japan safely./.VNA
