- To crack down on China showing grandeur, its two neighboring countries have come together.
- Japan has signed a very important defense deal with Vietnam
- Under this new agreement, Japan will export defense equipment to Vietnam
From the South China Sea to the East China Sea, two of its neighboring countries have come together to crack down on China, which is showing grandeur. Japan has signed a defense agreement with Vietnam. Under this new agreement, Japan will export defense equipment and technology manufactured in its country to Vietnam. Japan’s Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said that with this new agreement, the defense partnership between the two countries has reached a new level.
Nobuo Kishi said there are plans to further strengthen defense ties between Japan and Vietnam. For this, steps like joint exercise between the armies of both the countries will be taken. The Japanese Defense Ministry said state-of-the-art equipment, including naval warships, would be discussed and then given. The Japanese Defense Minister signed the agreement during his visit to the city of Hanoi, Vietnam.
China donated 3 million doses of corona vaccine to Vietnam
The funny thing is that the Japanese Defense Minister has met the Defense Minister of Vietnam at a time when Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is also in Hanoi. The Chinese Foreign Minister concluded his visit by saying that he would donate 3 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine to Vietnam. He said that China and Vietnam should avoid unilateral action in the South China Sea.
Wang Yi said unilateral action could complicate the situation in the South China Sea and increase disagreements manifold. Let us tell you that Vietnam has a dispute with China over the Spratley and Paracel Islands. The Japanese Defense Minister cited China’s increasing aggressive activities in the disputed maritime area in gestures. The Defense Ministers of both the countries emphasized the freedom of navigation.
China is continuously increasing the tension by sending its warships in the East China Sea.
The leaders of Japanese and Vietnam also stressed on cooperation in the field of cyber security. Along with Vietnam, Japan also has territorial disputes with China. China continues to claim the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands by sending its warships in the East China Sea. Chinese warships are also harassing Japanese fishing boats.
