India-Vietnam (Vietnam) is set to hold a virtual meeting amid tensions between India and China. On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc will attend a virtual meeting to discuss the two countries' strategic partnership.
It is learned that bilateral talks are going to be held between the two countries on defense, energy and health, starting from the security arrangements in the Indo-Pacific region. A joint letter will be issued at the meeting for the development of the future of the ‘India-Vietnam Joint Strategic Partnership’, which will enhance cooperation in various fields.
Since 2016, India and Vietnam have been advancing their strategic partnership smoothly. They also stood by each other in defense. Earlier in 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Vietnam. At that time, India-Vietnam relations were once again strengthened. For the first time since Russia and China, Vietnam signed a strategic partnership agreement with India.
Incidentally, Japan is building an antiship missile that will be able to dust off enemy warships from afar. The missile will also monitor enemy warships. The Japanese government has said it will use the missile to protect the southwestern part of the island of Okinawa. Because, China has repeatedly tried to establish its dominance on this island in the South China Sea. China has repeatedly expressed its aggressive nature. So, it is becoming clear that this time Japan is going to give a strong blow to China.
