NDO/VNA – Deputy Defence Minister Nguyen Chi Vinh hosted a reception in Hanoi on May 8 for the Director of Israel’s Defence Export and Cooperation Agency (SIBAT) Mishel Ben Baruch, who is on a working visit to Vietnam to seek ways to strengthen bilateral defence ties.

Stressing positive developments in Vietnam-Israel defence relations, Senior Lieutenant General Vinh showed his hopes that the visit of the SIBAT delegation will help to further enhance ties.

The Israeli side is willing to boost defence cooperation with Vietnam, especially in education-training, search and rescue missions, and the defence industry, he affirmed.
