During the meeting with Japanese PM Kishida, both leaders consented to foster the bilateral ties, for the sake of people of the two countries, and for regional and international prosperity.

 

In that spirit, they agreed to soon arrange high-level visits by Vietnamese and Japanese leaders.

They also exchanged views on many regional and international issues of shared concern, including climate change response and coordination at regional and global forums.

The two PMs stressed the significance of maintaining peace, stability, security and safety of aviation and navigation in the East Sea and the East China Sea, saying disputes should be settled via peaceful measures and dialogues and in line with international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

At their meeting, PM Chinh and his Indian counterpart Modi concurred to boost all-level meetings through party, state, government, parliament and people channels.

The two sides will coordinate to organise activities marking the 50th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties next year, and work to foster people-to-people exchanges and cultural and tourism ties after the pandemic is brought under control.

Vietnam and India will also strengthen collaboration in regional and international issues, and support each other at multilateral forums and in activities such as responding to climate change, maintaining peace, stability, security, safety and freedom of navigation and overflight in accordance with international law, especially 1982 UNCLOS.

In their meeting, PM Chinh and his Kuwaiti counterpart Al-Hamad Al-Sabah agreed to beef up the comprehensive relationship between the two countries, and pay more heed to joint investment projects, particularly those in the field of oil and gas.

Receiving IAEA Director General Grossi, PM Chinh thanked the agency for its supply of equipment, bioproducts and materials and the transfer of technology of COVID-19 testing to Vietnam.

Grossi affirmed that the agency stands ready to aid Vietnam and provide technical consultancy for the country in this field.

Meeting with US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate Kerry, PM Chinh said Vietnam has joined the Glasgow Leaders' Declaration on Forests and Land Use, the Global Methane Pledge, and the international action on adaptation to climate change.

Vietnam would like to receive support from the US to complete the targets, he added.
