Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his Czech counterpart Andrej Babis have agreed to enhance the two countries’ multi-faceted cooperation and to speed up the launching of a direct air route between their two capitals.

The two leaders joined talks in Prague on Wednesday, within the framework of PM Phuc’s official visit to the Czech Republic on April 16 and 17.

As a close friend of Vietnam and an active member of the European Union (EU), the Czech Republic supports the intensification of the Vietnam-EU relations and will push for the early completion of EU procedures so that the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement and the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement can be signed within the next one or two months, PM Babis stressed.

The two premiers agreed to strengthen the exchange of delegations between sectors and localities of the two countries.

Focus will also be directed on effectively implementing the mechanism of the Vietnam-Czech inter-governmental committee on economic cooperation and boosting ties in security, national defense, technology, mining, and tourism.

Both sides expressed their belief that the early opening of a direct air route between Hanoi and Prague will help further strengthen the bilateral relations in trade, investment and tourism.

They consented to enhance bilateral cooperation at international forums and organizations.

The Czech Republic supports Vietnam’s bid to become a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2020-2021 term, PM Babis stated.

He also praised the role and contributions of the Vietnamese community to the socio-economic development of the Czech Republic.

The leaders reiterated the importance of preserving peace and stability in the East Vietnam Sea, and settling disputes via peaceful means in line with international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Following the talks, they witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in mining, and held a joint press conference.
