India-Vietnam ties are not just robust but have been on an upward trajectory, an important pointer to this being the growing defence ties. It’s widely believed that the two countries have been stepping up defence cooperation to counter China’s growing might in the region. In the second part of the exclusive interview with SNI Deputy Editor Parul Chanda, Vietnamese ambassador Pham Sanh Chau says the comprehensive strategic partnership between Vietnam and India reflects a deep and multifaceted level of political trust. On the contentious issue of RCEP, the envoy says while ASEAN member states understand India’s reservations, efforts have been made to address India’s misgivings.
