A week ago, the safeguard part of the relationship was in the spotlight again with the holding of the current year’s emphasis of the Vietnam-Australia Defense Policy Dialog. The discourse occurred on October 29 in Canberra, and it was led by Peter Tesch, Australia’s representative secretary for key approach and insight, and Vietnam’s appointee guard serve Nguyen Chi Vinh.

Likewise, with past cycles, the discourse saw the two sides trade sees on both the condition of the respective relationship just as other territorial and worldwide issues of common enthusiasm to them. Per the official record of the communication by Vietnam’s guard service, the issues talked about incorporated the South China Sea and the job of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in the provincial security design, with Vietnam expecting the yearly turning ASEAN seat in 2020.
