New ambassadors present credentials to State President
As a member of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), Viet Nam will send a delegation to the 60th NAM Conference that will be held in Iran, President Sang said.
He conveyed his best regards to his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and said he hopes the talks between the P5+1 group and Iran that will take place in Russia will be a great success.
The Iranian ambassador spoke highly of Vietnam’s target of becoming a modern industrialized nation by 2020, adding that his country wants to contribute to Viet Nam’s development goals.
Both countries should continue to promote exchanges of high-levels visits and trade cooperation for mutual benefits, said the Iranian diplomat.
State President Sang welcomed the ambassador from Mozambique to his first time assuming duties in Viet Nam, saying that Vietnam is ready to expand cooperation with Mozambique in various fields as well as at regional and international forums.
Viet Nam and Mozambique should effectively tap into potential areas for cooperation such as agriculture, construction, economics and trade to enhance their bilateral relations, said State President Sang.
The Mozambique ambassador said his presence in Vietnam aims to bring the relationship between the two countries to a higher level and conveyed a letter from Mozambique’s President inviting State President Sang to visit his country in the near future.
Welcoming the ambassador from Georgia, State President Sang asked him to spend time collecting information from Vietnamese ministries and sectors in order to increase bilateral cooperation in education, training, economics and trade.
The Georgian ambassador said he is very impressed by the tremendous achievements Vietnam has recorded over the past years, saying that he will do his best to deepen the friendship between the two nations.
State President Sang told the Eritrean ambassador that he is very pleased with the fine bilateral relations between Viet Nam and Eritrea, as well as their reciprocal support at international forums.
Viet Nam is willing to share experiences with Eritrea towards stronger cooperation in economics, trade, agriculture and seafood processing, State President Sang said.
The Eritrean ambassador said he hopes his term of office in Viet Nam will serve as a bridge for both countries to promote cooperation, saying that Eritrea will learn much from Viet Nam’s experience in boosting national development and raising its international status.
State President Sang highlighted the fine relations between Viet Nam and Ethiopia over the past 40 years while receiving the new Ethiopian ambassador. He said economic and trade cooperation is still far from matching the two nations’ potential, therefore inter-government committees need to review agreements and protocols to enhance bilateral cooperation for mutual benefit.
The Ethiopian ambassador praised Viet Nam’s socio-economic achievements, especially in reducing poverty, adding that Viet Nam’s achievements will be good examples for his country to follow.
He also extended regards from the Ethiopian President to State President Sang while expressing the desire for developing stronger relations between Viet Nam and Ethiopia.
