Vietnamese State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed ways to foster the two nations’ comprehensive strategic partnership and cooperation in relation to COVID-19 over the phone on Thursday, according to the Vietnam Government Portal.

During the conversation, President Phuc stated that Vietnam treasures its traditional friendship and comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia and hopes to strengthen bilateral cooperation across all fields.

The two leaders agreed on continuing to boost ties in trade and investment, as well as accelerate the implementation of joint projects in key areas including energy, petroleum, defense, and security.

Regarding the fight against COVID-19, Phuc called on Russia to continue supporting Vietnam with vaccines, medicine, and medical supplies, as well as to step up the transfer of vaccine production technology.

President Putin praised the bilateral cooperation in pandemic response, affirming that Russia will further support and collaborate with Vietnam to fight the pandemic.

Both sides were committed to closely and effectively coordinating at regional forums, and agreed on the settlement of disputes in the East Vietnam Sea by peaceful means and in accordance with international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). 

The Vietnamese president affirmed that the Southeast Asian country is ready to act as a bridge for Russia to expand cooperation with ASEAN and the Asia-Pacific region. 

He asked Russia to continue supporting and creating favorable conditions for the Vietnamese community there, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

President Putin invited President Phuc to pay an official visit to Russia soon and the invitation was accepted with pleasure.
