MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. A delegation from Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, led by Speaker Sergey Naryshkin, is due to discuss cooperation between Moscow and Hanoi during the official visit to Vietnam on December 2-3.
The Russian lawmakers are expected to meet with Vietnam’s top government officials “to discuss topical issues of bilateral cooperation,” the Russian lower house of parliament said.
Naryshkin is also scheduled to make a speech before the students of the Hanoi University.
Russian First Deputy Speaker of the State Duma, Ivan Melnikov, said last week the visit is due to focus on “strengthening cooperation in the parliamentary activity.”
The visit comes as Russia and Vietnam prepare to mark important dates in the history of bilateral relations: the 65th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations in late January 2015, the 40th anniversary since the liberation of southern Vietnam and unification of the country; the 70th anniversary since Vietnam proclaimed independence and the 70th anniversary since the victory in WWII.
