Vietnam will offer Ukraine, where the Moscow-Kyiv military conflict has lasted for over two months, US$500,000 worth of humanitarian assistance, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said on Sunday.

PM Chinh announced the aid at a press conference held on Sunday after his talks with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who arrived in Hanoi a day earlier for a two-day official visit at Chinh’s invitation, the Vietnam Government Portal reported.

In addition to discussions on beefing up an extended strategic partnership between Vietnam and Japan, the two PMs also exchanged opinions about international and regional matters of mutual concern, such as the East Vietnam Sea issue, the Ukraine situation, and non-traditional security challenges.

Regarding the current state of Ukraine, on which Russia has launched an attack since February 24, both the host and guest called on the related parties to persistently promote dialogue and negotiations to seek for a lasting peaceful solution.

The two government leaders affirmed their respect for basic principles of international law and the United Nations Charter, especially the principle of respect for all countries' sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity, and legitimate rights and interests, as well as the principle of not using force or threatening to use force in international relations.

PM Chinh asserted that Vietnam is willing to make active contributions to humanitarian relief operations, diplomatic processes, dialogue, and negotiations related to Ukraine.

Vietnam will offer $500,000 in humanitarian aid to Ukraine through international humanitarian organizations, Chinh said.

In respect of the East Vietnam Sea issue, the two PMs pledged to strengthen coordination to maintain peace and stability in the region.

They also stressed the importance of ensuring peace, security, safety, and freedom of navigation and overflight in the waterway.

Any disputes should be settled through peaceful means, without using or threatening to use force, and on the basis of international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in maritime activities, the host and guest agreed.

They also called for fully implementing the Declaration on Conduct of Parties in the East Vietnam Sea (DOC), and soon completing a practical and effective Code of Conduct (COC) for the maritime route in accordance with international law and the 1982 UNCLOS.
