HANOI, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s visit to Vietnam will facilitate strategic partnership, Vietnam’s senior government official said.
Upcoming consultations “will give us a good opportunity to determine ways to specify Russia-Vietnam strategic partnership. We’ll discuss the implementation of the agreements, reached during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Hanoi in November 2013”, Vietnamese Vice-Premier, Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh said in an exclusive interview with ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
Special attention will be paid to major projects in the oil, gas and energy sectors. The ministers will consider ways of expanding inter-ministerial cooperation for contributing to effective development between the two countries, he said.
The talks will focus on global and regional issues of mutual interest, particularly, on cooperation within the UN and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), Pham Binh Minh said.
Vietnam praises Russia’s efforts aimed at maintaining peace and stability round the world, he said.
“Peace, stability and prosperity in the Asia Pacific Region promote the interests of all countries, including Vietnam and Russia,” Pham Binh Minh said.
