Russia and Vietnam agreed on a simplified procedure for calling Russian ships to Cam Ranh

Russia and Vietnam signed an intergovernmental agreement on a simplified procedure for calling Russian warships and ships to the Vietnamese port of Cam Ranh, a source in the Russian Defense Ministry told Tass.

"The agreement was signed in Sochi on November 25 during the visit to Russia of the Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Chong. It establishes the so-called" conciliatory "procedure for Russian ships and vessels to enter Cam Ranh, when this requires only notification of the port authorities that approached the territorial waters of Vietnam by ship or vessel after serving in the World Ocean. In response to this notification, permission to enter is automatically given, "the agency's interlocutor said.

According to him, after the signing of the agreement, Russian ships, including submarines, and ships can enter the port of Cam Ranh free of charge, but other services of the receiving party will remain paid. "For everything else - the time spent by the ships in the port, refueling them with fuel, water, supplying food, supplying electricity, performing, if necessary, routine and repair work, leaving the crew on an excursion to the city by buses, and more - you will have to pay", - specified the source.

He noted that Vietnam has become the second country in the world with which Russia has such an agreement. “Russia signed a similar agreement many years ago with Syria regarding the entry of ships and vessels of the Russian Navy into the Syrian port of Tartus. True, Russia has another agreement with Syria - regarding the point of material and technical support of the Russian Navy, operating in the same Tartus. Russia has no agreement with Vietnam yet. The signing of this document should be the subject of further negotiations between the two countries on cooperation in the field of navigation, "the source said.
