Growing defence ties between Vietnam and Cuba are set to further expand following a recent meeting between Divisional General Víctor Rojo Ramos, head of the Political Directorate of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR), and General Luong Cuong, Chairman of the General Department of Politics under the Vietnam People’s Army (VPA).

Divisional General Ramos is in Vietnam as head of a delegation that is attending the Vietnam International Defence Expo 2022 (VIDEX 2022) from December 8-10. Cuong hosted an official welcome ceremony for Divisional General Ramos on Dec. 5. Divisional General Ramos also met with Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Tan Cuong, Chief of the General Staff of the VPA and Deputy Minister of National Defence, on the same day.

The two countries signed a defence cooperation pact in 2011 and followed it up with a defence cooperation plan for 2020-2022. Since the signing of the agreements, cooperation between the two defence industries, delegation exchanges as well as collaboration in human resources training have picked up intensity.

After their meeting, the two officers signed a memorandum of understanding on increasing defence cooperation between the two countries. The two countries are also expected to sign a formal defence cooperation agreement for 2023-2025.
