General Son also recalled the achievements in cooperation activities and programs between the hospital and the U.S. military medicine force over the past time, affirming that those positive results will contribute to strengthening Vietnam-U.S. relations, especially in military medicine.
He emphasized that the successful deployment of the first level-two field hospital of Vietnam to the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) resulted in part from the active assistance of U.S. medical experts who helped train and share experience with Vietnamese medical peacekeepers.
