Vietnam's navy chief and deputy minister Vice Admiral Nguyen Van Hien Monday met his Indian counterpart Admiral Nirmal Verma here when the two sides discussed security challenges in the Indian Ocean region, apart from the scope for expanding defence cooperation between the two countries.

Nguyen, who arrived in India June 24, also discussed possibilities of India's help to build capacities of the Vietnamese naval force, which is small and growing, when compared with the Indian Navy.

The Vietnamese navy chief had already completed his visit to Mumbai, where he visited the Indian Navy's Western Command and defence public sector shipbuilder Mazagon Dock Limited before reaching New Delhi.

Apart from interacting with the Western Naval Command chief, Vice Admiral D.K. Joshi, the Vietnamese navy chief had also got to take a look at Indian warship building capacities and functioning of the defence shipyard, the officials said.

He is scheduled to meet Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony, air force chief Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik and army chief General V.K. Singh, as part of his bilateral talks.

Nguyen will go to Visakhapatnam on Wednesday where he will visit the newly-acquired defence public sector shipbuilder Hindustan Shipyard Limited, apart from visiting naval formations.
