Cooperation dialogue between the Navy and the Navy of Vietnam on the V-RMTC&T-RMN (Virtual Regional Maritime Traffic Centre & Trans Regional Maritime Network) has started
Born from the awareness of the importance of the sea and the desire to strengthen the partnership with a country of growing strategic importance in the Indo-Pacific area, the dialogue started between the Navy and the Vietnam People’s Navy during the stop of the Morosini ship in Ho Chi Minh City in the period from 9 to 12 May.
In an area where the maritime dimension assumes increasing geopolitical importance every day and in full adherence with the strategic concept promoted by the European Union for the Indo-Pacific, Maritime Security becomes, in a broader scenario of dialogue and international cooperation, a reason and element of comparison between the realities of the two countries.
The dialogue on the V-RMTC, a tool that allows to receive and share among the countries participating in the initiative all the information relating to merchant traffic on the sea, has allowed for several years to increase dialogue and mutual trust between the partners participating in the initiative, for the benefit of a common Maritime Situational Awareness and maritime safety.
To represent the Navy Admiral of Division Vincenzo Montanaro, who during the visit on board the Morosini ship of the delegation of the Vietnam People’s Navy, led by Sen.Cpt. Dinh Van Thang, Deputy Commander in Chief of Naval Region Two, presented the peculiarities and potential of the system that allows many Navies around the world to exchange information and continuous collaboration in the trans-regional context.
Given the strong interest shown by the counterpart and the desire to initialize the procedure for joining the initiative, a dialogue has been launched which, if concretized, will bring the inclusion of the Vietnam Navy – together with the Navies of 37 other nations already involved – in the architecture of the V-RMTC and TRMN system to collaborate, build, receive and disseminate Maritime Situational Awareness on a global scale.
