Vietnam treasures time-honoured friendship, cooperation with Belarus

VOV.VN - Vietnam places great importance on reinforcing traditional friendship and cooperation with Belarus, said Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, while receiving visiting Belarusian Minister of Internal Affairs Ivan Vladimirovich Kubrakov in Hanoi on April 26.

The Vietnamese cabinet leader hailed Belarus’s support for Vietnam’s past struggle for independence and national reunification, and current national construction and protection.

Belarus has offered optimal conditions for Vietnamese expatriates to integrate into its society and offered Vietnam assistance with medical equipment and supplies to overcome COVID-19 and recover, Chinh told his guest.

He highlighted the contributions of their growing political, socioeconomic, cultural, and collaboration in defence and security to the sustainable and stable development of each nation.

He suggested both sides effectively sustain their existing cooperation mechanisms and fields and study and develop new mechanisms and initiatives to jointly respond to new challenges.

Minister Kubrakov, in turn, briefed his host on the outcomes of his recent talks with the Vietnamese Minister of Public Security To Lam, saying they reached important security-related agreements and action plans between the two ministries and the countries’ localities in terms of professional training, among others.

The Government leader said he is delighted to see the two sides signed important documents, and exchanged and agreed upon a series of specific and practical measures to further bolster the Vietnam-Belarus cooperation in preventing and combating crime, and maintaining social order and safety in each country.

He went on to note that Vietnam welcomes Belarusian enterprises and pledges to create favourable conditions for them to expand their investment and long-term business in Vietnam, especially in sectors where Belarus has strengths such as fertilisers, machinery, and equipment.

Vietnam also wants Belarus’ facilitation for more Vietnamese goods, particularly agro-fishery products, to enter its market.

Kubrakov conveyed Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko’s greetings and desires to welcome PM Chinh in Belarus at an appropriate time.

In response, Chinh said he has assigned competent agencies to prepare to welcome his Belarusian counterpart in an official visit to Vietnam at a time suitable for the two sides.
