Six aircraft from French Air Force land in Vietnam on August 27


Speaking at a press meeting held on August 27 on the visit, French Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam, Olivier Sigaud said this was the first visit by the French Air Force in 60 years and showed the dynamic development in Franco-Vietnamese co-operation in many fields including defence.

"This event marked an important point as the two countries are celebrating 45 years of diplomatic relations and five years as strategic partners, the French official said.

"During an official visit to France by Vietnamese Communist Party Secretary General Nguyen Phu Trong under the invitation of President Emmanuel Macron in March, the two leaders expressed wishes to enhance bilateral defence ties. And the current visit was following that agreement, Sigaud noted.

The visit by the French Air Force will last until August 29, during their Mission Pegase in Asia.
