Vietnam always treasures its traditional partnership with Mozambique and considers it one of Vietnam's key cooperation partners in Africa, Vietnamese Vice-State President Vo Thi Anh Xuan said during talks with Mozambican Prime Minister Adriano Maleiane on Monday, part of her visit to the African nation from Sunday to Wednesday.

This is her first visit to the Republic of Mozambique at the invitation of Prime Minister Maleiane.

Her trip marks a key milestone in the Vietnam-Mozambique relationship, said the Mozambican prime minister.

PM Maleiane affirmed that Mozambique sees Vietnam as one of its top priority partners in Asia, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

During their talks, the two top officials expressed joy at the positive progress in bilateral relations over the past few years.

The founding of mobile telecommunication operator Movitel in Mozambique, a joint venture between Vietnam’s Viettel Group and Mozambique’s SPI, and Vietnam's food crop development cooperation in the African country have become bright spots in the bilateral relations. 

The two nations have made great strides in cooperation in trade, education-training, and health fields.

To deepen the Vietnam-Mozambique ties, the two leaders agreed to bolster high-level delegation exchanges and support each other at regional and international forums.

The representatives of the two nations encouraged Vietnamese and Mozambican firms to strengthen their cooperation and expand their reach to contribute to elevating bilateral trade in the future.

Furthermore, the two sides reached a consensus on setting agriculture as their main cooperative sector to back the global supply chain and ensure food security.

The Mozambican prime minister proposed Vietnam boost cooperation and investment in infrastructure and transportation in Mozambique.

Meanwhile, Vietnamese Vice-President Xuan hinted at fostering partnership in mineral development. 

The Mozambican side was committed to promoting the early signing of a memorandum of understanding on coal trade with Vietnam.

The African nation also proposed increasing the number of scholarships and enhancing cultural exchanges as well as cooperation in the fight against transnational crimes and wildlife protection.
