KHANH HOA — Around 30 young naval officers from ASEAN countries gathered in central Nha Trang City yesterday to promote friendship, solidarity and cooperation between regional naval forces.
Hosted by the Viet Nam People's Navy based on an initiative proposed at the 5th ASEAN Naval Chiefs' Meeting (ANCM-5) in Ha Noi in July last year, the exchange also aims to share experience and professional knowledge.
Delegates also had a chance to board the Gerpard-3.9 High Command Naval Zone 4 vessel in an evening programme with students from the Viet Nam Naval Academy in the city.
The event provided the Viet Nam People's Navy an opportunity to strengthen integration and raise its role and position in the region and the world, contributing to peaceful, stable and developed territorial waters. — VNS
