At the event, Nam affirmed that Viet Nam always bears in mind precious support from Poland during the country’s struggle for dependence in the past as well as national construction and defence at present.
Hailing timely support from the Polish government for Viet Nam’s COVID-19 fight, the official underlined that the assistance is a proof of sentiments of the two Governments and peoples.
For his part, Ambassador Gerwel said Poland wishes to closely cooperate with Viet Nam in various fields, including national defence and security.
The two sides noted with satisfaction that the bilateral national defence cooperation has been bolstered over the recent past, especially after the signing of a memorandum of understanding on bilateral defence cooperation in 2010, primarily in exchange of delegations, human resource development and defence industry.
They agreed to intensify defence cooperation in the coming time in a flexible manner and in tandem with the COVID-19 situation, with a focus on maintaining the exchange of delegations, particularly of high-ranking ones.
The sides will step up discussion towards the prompt approval of the Viet Nam-Poland defence cooperation plan for this year.
