Vietnam can count on getting modern military equipment, said Russia’s President Vladimi Putin yesterday in Hanoi on closing to the Russian-Vietnamese summit meeting. "Vietnam can get the newest military equipment that is no worse than other countries do," the Russian president is quoted by Interfax as saying. Mr. Putin believes Vietnam not only needs to maintain the equipment that was previously supplied to this country, but also needs "weapons of the newest models." President Putin placed special emphasis on the fact that Russia will develop its military cooperation with Vietnam in accordance with its international obligations. "Russia intends to observe all non-proliferation regimes," the Russian president emphasized.
