Vietnamese and Russian governments, agencies, ministries, sectors, and universities signed 11 cooperation documents on Thursday on the occasion of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s state visit to the Southeast Asian nation.

Vietnamese State President To Lam and his Russian counterpart witnessed the signing after their talks.

Speaking at a press briefing the same day, State President Lam affirmed that the talks between him and President Putin took place in an open-minded and heartfelt mood.

The state leader highly valued the visit by the Russian president, which concluded the same day, underlining that it was taken when Vietnam and Russia mark the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty on Principles of Friendly Relations between the two nations (June 16).

The head of the Vietnamese state reaffirmed that Vietnam is determined to follow the foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, openness, diversification, and multilateralism, while being ready to make friends with countries around the world for peace, stability, cooperation, and development.

Vietnam always remembers Russia's support and sees Moscow as one of the priorities in its diplomatic activities, he stressed.
