HANOI, March 13. /TASS/. Russia and Vietnam need no one's instructions or recommendations regarding bilateral military and technical cooperation, Russia's Ambassador in Hanoi Konstantin Vnukov said on Friday.
Russia and Vietnam are independent countries, Vnukov said commenting on the US demand that the Vietnamese authorities ban Russian armed forces from using a naval base in Cam Ranh Bay.
"Our cooperation poses no threat to regional and global peace and stability. We will continue developing mutually beneficial cooperation," the diplomat said.
Russia’s Pacific Fleet used to have its logistics support base on Cam Ranh for 23 years. It used to be the largest Russian naval base abroad. In May 2002, Russia officially returned the facility to Vietnam, which said it would use the base’s potential for the purpose of the country’s socio-economic development.
