Lao Ambassador Sengphet Houngboungnuang congratulated Giang on his appointment as Defence Minister of Vietnam and expressed his belief that the minister will make more contributions to the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, States and armies.

The two sides affirmed that the defence cooperation is an important pillar of the bilateral ties, and significantly contributes to national construction and defence of each country.

Given the unexpected developments of the regional and international situation, the two countries should maintain and tighten the traditional friendship and special solidarity, and the defence ties in particular, they said.

They agreed to step up the exchange of delegations, especially those at the high level, in order to discuss strategic issues of shared concern, and enhance collaboration across spheres, especially defence and military.
