MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. Vietnam’s newly-elected Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has said that his first foreign visit is to Moscow because the country’s leadership fully trusts Russia and hopes for expanding bilateral cooperation.
"I chose Russia for my first foreign visit. This means that Vietnam’s leadership fully trusts Russian friends and hopes for developing multilateral cooperation," Phuc said on Monday at the meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Vietnam hopes to reach agreements in several promising spheres during the visit, he added. "Vietnam’s leadership decisively supports developing relations with friendly Russian Federation. We will fulfill all commitments that we agreed upon," Phuc said noting that he means not only economic cooperation.
Phuc assumed office on April 7 after his candidacy was approved by Vietnam’s National Assembly (parliament).
