Vietnam, Israel sign defence co-operation accord

04 March 2015

Vietnam and Israel have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on defence co-operation, the Vietnam Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 3 March.

The agreement was signed in Hanoi by Vietnam's deputy minister of defence, Lieutenant General Nguyen Chi Vinh, and Dan Harel, the director general of Israel's MoD.

The Vietnam MoD did not provide details about the accord but said it furthers recent bilateral efforts, which have focused on deepening collaboration across several sectors including military-to-military activities, technology transfers, and industrial partnerships.

In 2014 Israel and Vietnam also announced a plan to establish a joint committee to pinpoint areas of potential defence trade and related collaboration.
