MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will on Monday discuss with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguy·n Xu·n Ph·c implementation of the free trade agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU: Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan) and Vietnam, the Russian government said.
The government said on its official website that during the talks, Medvedev and Nguy·n Xu·n Ph·c will "discuss the key aspects of relations with emphasis on promotion of trade and investment interaction."
"Also discussed will be issues of implementation of large joint projects in the nuclear power industry, oil and gas sector, industry, agriculture, scientific-technological sphere and other fields," the statement said.
Russia is expected to take part in implementation of the project to build Vietnam’s first nuclear power plant in the province of Ninh Thuan. Russian and Vietnamese oil and gas companies are engaged in development of deposits on Vietnam’s continental shelf and in Russia.
"After the talks, a number of bilateral cooperation documents are due to be signed," the statement said.
The Vietnamese prime minister is arriving in Russia on an official visit to take part in the jubilee summit Russia - ASEAN that will be held later in May.
The Russia-ASEAN summit will be held in Sochi on May 19-20 and will become the biggest international event in Russia in 2016. The summit will be held under the slogan "Towards Strategic Partnership for the Sake of the Common Good."
The summit is expected to adopt a declaration that will lay the basis for an action plan of Russia-ASEAN cooperation in the political, economic and cultural spheres, as well as in the sphere of security.
Russia has been a dialog partner of ASEAN since July 1996. Similar partnership summits are normally held on the territory of member-states and the choice of Sochi as venue for the Russia-ASEAN summit on the partnership’s 20th anniversary is symbolic.
