HA NOI (VNS) — Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People's Army (VPA) Lieut. Gen. Vo Van Tuan, said a direct telephone hotline between the Defence Ministries of Viet Nam and China would strengthen co-operation between the two peoples and armies.

While meeting Miao Hongbo, head of the Zhong Nanhai telegraph office, on February 25 in Ha Noi, Lieut. Gen. Tuan said the hotline would help the two armies share information on issues of mutual concern in a timely manner.

Miao Hongbo briefed his host on the result of his working session with the VPA's Information and Communication Arm, which focused on preparations for the establishment of the hotline.
