At the event, Major General Cui Lianjie, head of the Chinese delegation, informed Vinh of the outcomes of the working session with the Institute for Defence Strategy of Vietnam, during which both sides reached consensus on the first draft of the scientific research cooperation project on collecting documents and exhibits on friendship between the armies of Vietnam and China, and solidarity thoughts of Ho Chi Minh and Mao Zedong during the resistance wars against France and the US.

Cui said they also discussed a plan to study several historical locations in Vietnam for the project in the coming time.
