HA NOI (VNS) — The recently completed UN missions in South Sudan and Central Africa with two Vietnamese peacekeeping units evoked positive response, heard attendees at a defence session held in Ha Noi yesterday.

The Viet Nam Peacekeeping Centre reported that it was readying personnel for next year's missions to Central Africa in April and in South Sudan in July, while its training programmes for liaisons and adjutants will be set for application by the end of 2015.

By June 2016, field hospital staff and an engineer corps will finish their training sessions prior to deployment. Training in English and other professional courses continue for their operations.

Concluding the meeting, Deputy Defence Minister Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Chi Vinh requested the centre to boost communication activities for the peacekeeping engagement as well as training standards.

Working closely with foreign partners to ensure the safety of Vietnamese officers overseas is essential, he noted.

He also urged expeditious preparations for the debut of the field hospital and the engineer corps. — VNS
