Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc (L) and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin meet in Moscow on November 30. 


The statement was released following the talks between Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin in Moscow on November 30.

The seven-point document affirmed that the two countries’ comprehensive strategic partnership, based on the long-standing friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation, has been nurtured through generations, tested by time, and stood firm in the face of changes. It is a role model of cooperation with mutual respect.

The two sides affirmed the determination to further strengthen the Vietnam - Russia comprehensive strategic partnership until 2030, guided by the basic principles and orientations of viewing the partnership intensification and effectiveness improvement as a priority in their foreign policies; building the comprehensive strategic partnership on the basis of mutual trust, sovereign equality, territorial integrity, equality, the right to self-determination, no intervention in each other’s internal affairs, no use or threats to use force, and peaceful settlement of disputes; and supporting regional and international peace, stability, and development.

Another principle is that the two countries do not enter into alliance with or come to an agreement with a third party to take any actions harming each other’s independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity, and basic interests. The development of Vietnam - Russia relations is not aimed against any third side.

The statement affirmed that Vietnam and Russia will continue developing political dialogue in an extensive and substantive manner at high levels; strengthening cooperation in defence, security, military, and military technique on the basis of international law, for the sake of regional and international peace and stability; increasing strategic dialogue on defence; and working together to improve the effectiveness of the inter-governmental committee on military technique cooperation.

They consider economic partnership as an important pillar in their comprehensive strategic partnership, express their resolve to tighten links in education - training and science - technology, support the building of a more democratic and equal system of international relations with respect for international law and principles of the United Nations Charter.

The two countries do not support the imposition of unilateral economic sanctions that are not approved by the UN Security Council or violate international law. They support multilateralism in international relations; the enhancement of the UN’s coordinating role in ensuring peace, security, and sustainable development; the improvement of the UN activities’ effectiveness; and the UN democratisation and reforms, according to the joint statement.

Vietnam and Russia affirmed the universality and consistency of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which is the legal framework for all activities on seas and oceans and serves as the foundation for cooperation among countries, regions, and in the world. They also emphasised the integrity of this convention.

The two sides will coordinate with each other to guarantee security, safety, and freedom of navigation and overflight, and unimpeded trade. They support self-restraint, no use or threats to use force, and peaceful settlement of disputes among relevant sides in line with the common principles and standards of international law, including the principles in the UN Charter and the 1982 UNCLOS, as well as the standards and practices recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Vietnam and Russia support the full and effective implementation of the 2002 Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea and welcome efforts to soon adopt a code of conduct in the waters.

They will continue to deepen the ASEAN - Russia strategic partnership and step up fruitful cooperation on the basis of the comprehensive plan of action to implement the ASEAN - Russia strategic partnership for 2021 - 2025, the statement noted./.
