Belarusian PM arrives in Hanoi, starting official Vietnam visit
VOV.VN - Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko and his delegation arrived in Hanoi on December 6, beginning his four-day official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.
Those welcoming the delegation at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi were Minister of Science and Technology Huynh Thanh Dat, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang, Vietnamese Ambassador to Belarus Nguyen Van Ngu, and Belarusian Ambassador to Vietnam Uladzimir Baravikou.
Roman Golovchenko’s official visit is expected to add fresh impetus to reinforcing the relations between Vietnam and Belarus. During his stay, leaders of both sides will review the bilateral cooperation, and discuss ways to find specific steps to further enhance ties in the coming time.
The Vietnam – Belarus relations have deep roots dating back to the Soviet era when President Ho Chi Minh visited Belarus in 1957 and 1961, marking significant milestones in the development of both nations’ relations.
More than three decades since the establishment of diplomatic ties in 1992, Vietnam and Belarus have been enjoying and developing their traditional friendship and all-around cooperation with an increasingly high level of trust.
Vietnam and Belarus are collaborating across multiple fields, ranging from national defence to economy, trade, culture, education, sci-tech, people-to-people and locality-to-locality exchanges.
The two countries have set up a solid legal framework to augment cooperation in a multitude of areas, with about 50 cooperation agreements, including international treaties and agreements between ministries and agencies.
As many as 10 Vietnamese localities have established friendly and cooperative relations with six out of seven provincial-level localities of Belarus.
