South Sudan,Vietnam : VN reviews preparation of 2nd team of military doctors to be deployed to South Sudan.

The Ministry of National Defense on Thursday reviewed preparations of the second team of military doctors who will be sent to South Sudan in October this year to work at the United Nations level 2-field hospital.

Viet Nam dispatched the first team of 63 military doctors to the African country in October last year to replace medical officers from the UK.

Since 2014, Viet Nam has deployed 100 military officers for peacekeeping missions in South Sudan and the Central African Republic on 29 occasions. Of the total figure, female officers accounted for 12%, according to the Ministry.

Kamal Malhotra, United Nations Resident Coordinator said besides military officers, Viet Nam should consider sending other forces to join peacekeeping operations.
