外文标题：India and Vietnam to sign a defence pact amid China’s growing aggression in region
NEW DELHI: With a little over a month after President Pranab Mukherjee's Vietnam visit when a defence MoU was signed the two countries are expected to conclude another defence pact when Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung is in India on October 27-28 amid China's growing aggression in the region.
This proposed pact, coming after last month's MoU that entails 100 mn USD Line of Credit to Hanoi to purchase patrol boats to boost coastal security, is aimed at providing military hardware to Vietnam's armed forces, official sources told ET. Both counties predominantly use Russian defence equipment and this enables smooth bilateral cooperation including maintenance and supply of spare parts to Vietnamese armed forces by Delhi, sources informed.
The two countries, since becoming strategic partners in 2007, have growing defence and security ties necessitated by China's growing ambitions in the region including South China Sea and South Asia, pointed out experts who did not wish to be quoted given the sensitivity of the matter.
Anything against China is good for us.

So, Vietnam will sell weapons to India? I doubt Vietnam will buy made-by-Indians weapons unless they are crazy.
