ADF supports Vietnam in UN mission

An Air Force C-17A Globemaster III airlifted Vietnamese military personnel and equipment to Africa in support of Vietnam’s contribution to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

The airlift support between late March and late April allowed Vietnam to complete an important rotation of its UNMISS Level Two Field Hospital personnel.

Chief of Joint Operations Lieutenant General Greg Bilton said he was proud of the ADF’s support to Vietnam, which is an important partner for Australia in the Indo-Pacific region.

“The Australian Defence Force’s work alongside Vietnam demonstrates the close ties between our two countries,” Lieutenant General Bilton said.

“The peacekeeping partnership between Australia and Vietnam is a key element of our defence relationship.

“It highlights our shared vision of a peaceful, inclusive and resilient region actively supporting global security.”

The ADF has delivered more than 120 passengers and in excess of 55,000kg of cargo between Vietnam and Africa in the last two months, including medical and dental equipment, pharmaceuticals, electrical equipment, food stores and refrigerated supplies.

This was the third rotation of Vietnam’s UNMISS personnel the ADF has supported. The ADF helped with the first in October 2018 and the second in November 2019.
