Vietnam, Oman look to stronger bilateral cooperation

VOV.VN - Vietnam and Oman have concurred to intensify delegation exchange and incentivize their enterprises to participate in fairs and exhibitions of each nation to seek cooperation opportunities.

Both sides agreed upon this at meetings between Vietnamese Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Cuong and leaders of relevant ministries of Oman during his trip to the Arab country from October 13-14.

They affirmed their determination to properly realize signed agreements, especially those reached at the third meeting of the Vietnam-Oman Joint Committee held in Hanoi in March last year.

During the meetings, the two sides informed each other about political, socio-economic situations of each nation while reviewing bilateral cooperation and their collaboration at international forums.

Cooperation between Vietnam and Oman is still modest and yet to match their potential as well as political trust.

During his visit to Oman, Cuong also met with Minister Responsible for Foreign Affair Yusuf Bin Alawi Bin Abdullah, Minister of Commerce and Industry Ali Bin Masoud Al Sunaidy, and Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Hamad Bin Said Sulaiman Al Aufi.

He and his Omani counterpart Khalifa Bin Ali Al Harthy conducted the third political consultation. The Vietnamese diplomat also attended the Oman tourism and food exhibition 2019.
