Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh had two meetings with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and Indian Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar in Phnom Penh on Saturday.

At the meeting held on the sidelines of the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits, PM Chinh welcomed President Yoon’s first participation in an ASEAN summit, and extended Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong’s invitation to visit Vietnam to the South Korean leader. 

He expressed sympathy to South Korea over the tragic stampede that happened in Itaewon, Yongsan district of Seoul, on October 29, and thanked the South Korean government for coordinating closely with Vietnam in supporting the family of the Vietnamese victim in the incident. 

The two sides shared pleasure at the development of the bilateral relationship, and agreed to strengthen political trust, increase the exchange of delegations at all levels, and promote cooperation in digital transformation and green growth. 

PM Chinh proposed that the two sides continue to bolster their collaboration in economy, investment, trade, and official development assistance (ODA). 

He asked for South Korea’s support in industrialization and modernization as well as cultural industry development, and continuous assistance for Vietnamese citizens and Vietnamese-origin Koreans in the East Asian country to settle down and make more contributions to the socio-economic growth of both nations.

For his part, President Yoon affirmed that his country attaches great importance to the relations with the ASEAN, including the strategic partnership with Vietnam in its overall Indo-Pacific Strategy. 

South Korea is willing to work with Vietnam in areas of its strength and Vietnam’s demand such as digital transformation, cyber security, and biotechnology, he stated.

At the meeting with Indian Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar, PM Chinh conveyed his condolences to India for the bridge collapse that occurred in the state of Gurajat on October 30, causing great loss of life.

The two leaders agreed to maintain contacts and exchanges at all levels, people-to-people exchanges on all channels, and effectively implement signed agreements.

The Vietnamese PM suggested the two sides strengthen economic, trade, and investment cooperation, and asked for India’s further acceptance of Vietnamese goods, especially agricultural products.

Vietnam welcomes Indian businesses to invest in fields such as information technology, pharmaceuticals, education and training, agriculture, and energy, PM Chinh noted.

For his part, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar affirmed India’s view of Vietnam as an important partner in its Act East and Indo-Pacific policies.

He also accepted the invitation of the two countries co-chairing the meeting of the Vietnam-India Joint Committee on economic, trade, science-technology cooperation early next year.

The 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits and other relevant events have been taking place from November 10 to 13.
