South Korea gives Vietnam bomb detectors

The Việt Nam National Mine Action Centre (VNMAC) on Tuesday received 200 explosive detectors donated by the government of the Republic of Korea (RoK).

The detectors will be used for a project on reducing the impacts of unexploded devices left over from the war in the central province of Quảng Bình.

Commenced in March last year, the project is run by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Korea International Cooperation Agency and Vietnamese partners. Along with the tasks in bomb clearance, the project aims to assist development in the areas with most unexploded devices.

At the ceremony held in the province’s Quảng Ninh District, the RoK’s ambassador to Việt Nam Kim Do-hyon said the project is significant for the clearance of wartime unexploded devices in Việt Nam as well as for South Korea and Việt Nam to enhance their friendship.
