Vietnam attaches importance to developing ties with China and considers this as a leading priority in its foreign policy, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh told Chinese State Councillor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi at their meeting in Hanoi on September 11.

The host leader affirmed that the traditional friendship between Vietnam and China is a precious asset of the countries’ Parties, States, and peoples, and that the reinforcement of bilateral relations is an important factor for each country’s development and also a contribution to regional and global peace, cooperation, and development.

He expressed his belief that both sides will work together to effectively implement the common perceptions and agreements reached at the 13th meeting of the Vietnam - China Steering Committee for Bilateral Cooperation, maintain frequent contact between their senior leaders, and further promote exchange and cooperation mechanisms to enhance mutual understanding and trust, thus fostering relations between the two Parties and States in an increasingly substantive and effective manner.

With regard to cooperation in the COVID-19 fight, PM Chinh lauded the countries’ close coordination and mutual support since the pandemic broke out and thanked China for assisting Vietnam with vaccine via different forms, especially the provision of another 3 million vaccine doses announced during this trip by Wang.

He expressed his hope that China will continue supplying vaccine for Vietnam; transfer production technology for COVID-19 vaccine and treatment drugs; carry out COVID-19 vaccine purchase contracts to meet Vietnam’s demand, particularly in this September and October; share experience in disease treatment; and coordinate in controlling the pandemic in border areas.

For economic ties, the Government leader asked both sides to facilitate cross-border trading, especially the trading of Vietnam’s farm produce, aquatic products, and seasonal fruit, to help balance bilateral trade. He called for coordination to remove obstacles to investment projects, including the Cat Linh - Ha Dong urban railway project.

He also encouraged Chinese enterprises to invest in projects that match the two countries’ relations so that the people can enjoy the benefits from the substantive achievements of the bilateral friendship.

 

In terms of the East Sea issue, in a straightforward and constructive spirit, the PM stressed that both sides should instruct their law enforcement forces at sea to adhere to the high-level common perceptions and the Vietnam - China agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of sea-related issues, strive to properly settle and control disputes well, maintain a peaceful and stable environment at sea; while working with ASEAN countries to seriously implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea, step up the negotiation on a substantive and effective Code of Conduct in the waters, comply with international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and ensure security, safety, and freedom of navigation and overflight.

For his part, State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang affirmed that the Chinese Party, State, and people attach great importance to the friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive cooperation with their Vietnamese counterparts.

He thanked Vietnam for supporting and assisting China since COVID-19 first broke out, stressing that China is ready to continue helping Vietnam in the current period as it considers the difficulties facing Vietnam as its own.

He expressed support for PM Chinh’s opinions about the orientations and measures for reinforcing the two Parties and countries’ relations.

China will effectively carry out the outcomes of the 13th meeting of the Steering Committee for Bilateral Cooperation, further intensify win-win cooperation in all fields, and seriously carry out the high-level common perceptions about the control and proper settlement of disagreements, thereby unceasingly developing the China - Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership in a healthy and stable manner to bring practical benefits to both peoples, the Chinese official affirmed.

Foreign ministers talk measures for strengthening Vietnam - China ties

Vietnamese Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son and Chinese State Councillor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi held talks in Hanoi on September 11, discussing ways to promote the countries’ comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

The two sides applauded the recent strides in the Vietnam - China relations, stressing that the frequent meetings in flexible forms between senior leaders of the countries’ Parties and States since the beginning of 2021 have mapped out major orientations for bilateral cooperation and created an important driving force for exchanges and cooperation in various fields.

They agreed that amid the complex and considerably changing international situation, Vietnam and China’s enhancement of political trust and comprehensive cooperation matches the fundamental and long-term interests of both the peoples.

In the time ahead, the two foreign ministries will keep working closely to advise the countries’ leaders in increasing contact; stepping up friendship exchanges and all-round cooperation at all levels between sectors, localities, and peoples; tightening links in economy, trade, and the areas for which both sides hold potential, especially in infrastructure building and transport projects connecting the two countries; and bolstering the exchange of opinions about and mutual support in multilateral issues and at multilateral organisations.

The officials discussed specific measures to enhance bilateral coordination in COVID-19 prevention and control and maintenance of trading and economic activities.

FM Son thanked the Chinese Government for providing Vietnam with an additional 3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine. He expressed his hope that the two countries will keep strengthening ties in the COVID-19 combat, particularly in terms of vaccine.

The host asked China to provide favourable customs clearance procedures for Vietnamese goods, especially farm produce, at border gates and permit more fruits from Vietnam to be exported via official channels to China, thus helping to balance bilateral trade and sustain their supply and production chains.

He also called for coordination to speed up joint projects such as the Cat Linh - Ha Dong urban railway project in Hanoi and some others on social welfare funded by China.

At the talks, the two sides gave open and straightforward opinions about border and territorial issues. They suggested detailed measures for land border management on the basis of reached agreements and legal documents on border, especially keeping close coordination among the mechanisms of the Land Border Joint Committee and localities so as to share information and handle emerging issues in a timely manner.

The ministers agreed to continue seriously complying with the common perceptions reached between senior Vietnamese and Chinese leaders, controlling sea-related disputes well, jointly maintaining peace and stability in the East Sea, and together with ASEAN countries stepping up negotiations to soon attain an efficient, effective, and substantive Code of Conduct in the East Sea that is in line with international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

Minister Son emphasised the need to respect the rights and legitimate interests of coastal countries in conformity with international law, including the 1982 UNCLOS.

The two officials also highly valued the increasingly fruitful cooperation between the two foreign ministries, agreeing to intensify the collaboration between the ministries’ agencies./.
