An art troupe of the Vietnam People’s Army will perform in South Korea later this month to mark the 20th anniversary of forging diplomatic relations between the two nations, Seoul’s defense ministry said Thursday.

The art troupe will perform on March 20 in Seoul and on March 22 in Daejeon, about 150 km south of Seoul, where the headquarters of the Army, Navy and Air Force are located, the ministry said.

The troupe will feature special performances by top Vietnamese singers, dancers and traditional performers to entertain the Korean audience, it said.

South Korea’s military band visited Vietnam a year ago as part of a military exchange program.
