Vietnam treasures strategic partnership with Russia

Vietnam always attributes importance to consolidating and developing the comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia, said Party and State leader Nguyen Phu Trong at a reception for visiting Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Viktorovich Volodin in Hanoi on December 24.

The top Vietnamese leader hailed the official visit by the Russian official as well as cooperation between the two countries’ legislative bodies, States and people.

He also praised the efforts of the Vietnam National Assembly and the State Duma in signing an agreement on the establishment of an inter-parliamentary cooperation committee.

He said he hopes that the committee will work effectively, thereby helping push up the bilateral legislative ties and cooperation between Vietnam and Russia in diverse fields, particularly economics, trade and investment.

Volodin, in turn, showed his elation at his first-ever visit to Vietnam and extended greetings of President V. Putin and other Russian senior leaders to Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong.

He also affirmed the State Duma’s support for the enhancement of comprehensive strategic partnership between the two nations.

He also briefed his host on outcomes of his talks with NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, saying the establishment of the inter-parliamentary cooperation committee helps improve cooperative mechanism between the two legislatures and further augment bilateral ties in economics, trade, culture and education.

Through the committee, the two sides will work together on supervising the implementation of major joint projects and agreements reached by their senior leaders, he noted.

The State Duma will actively engage in a string of activities marking the 25th anniversary of a treaty on basic principles for bilateral friendship in 2019 and the 70th anniversary of the bilateral diplomatic ties in 2020, Volodin affirmed.
