Deputy Minister Vinh said the special relationship between Vietnam and Laos has always been vital for the two nations, adding that their senior leaders have attached great importance to preserving and consolidating the great relationship and special solidarity between the two governments, people and armies.
He noted that given complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic in the past time, Vietnamese and Lao defence units have made significant efforts to deploy their cooperation tasks in the fields of politics, delegation exchange, search and rescue, border protection, and human resources training, among others.
