Vietnamese, Lao armies cement ties

VIENTIANE (VNS)— Viet Nam and Laos agreed to promote co-operation between their army units and enhance security links with the goal of building a shared borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and development.

The agreement was reached during talks between Sen. Lieut. Gen. Ngo Xuan Lich, Chief of the General Department of Politics under the Viet Nam People's Army (VPA), and Lao Deputy Defence Minister and Director of the General Politics Department of the Lao People's Army (LPA) Sengneun Saynhalath in Luang Prabang yesterday.

The two sides also planned to increase coordination in searching and repatriating the remains of Vietnamese soldiers who died in Laos during the war. They aim to uncover the remains of 1,000 remaining Vietnamese martyrs.

In the 2012-13 dry season, the two sides exhumed the remains of 413 Vietnamese volunteer soldiers, raising the number of martyr remains collected in Laos since 1994 to over 16,000. — VNS
