The Mistral-class landing helicopter dock, one of the biggest ships of the French Navy, is hosting 200 cadets of the French navy and foreign navies on board, the embassy said in a press release.
During the port call, the crew will participate in various activities and meetings with Vietnamese authorities in order to promote the tightening of friendly ties and defense between the two countries.
