On the 14th, the largest escort ship of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, “Izumo”, along with the escort ship “Murasame”, visited Kamran Bay, a key location in southern Vietnam.
At the site, a welcome ceremony will be held with the participation of the Vietnamese Navy and local government officials, and Mr. Hiroyuki Egawa, commander of the first group of escorts to which “Izumo” belongs, Vietnam is an extremely important partner important to strengthen stability and expressed hope to promote cooperation with the Vietnamese navy.
The call from Izumo to Kamran Bay will be the second after Otosu, and this time, we will call this port until the 17th of this month to exchange views with the Vietnamese Navy.
“Izumo” is conducting joint training with the nuclear carrier of the United States Navy “Ronald Reagan” in the South China Sea, from 10 to 12 of this month before the call to Kamran Bay.
Even with the port call this time, as China advances to build bases in the South China Sea, Japan is expected to further strengthen its ties with the Vietnamese navy.
