Russia And Vietnam Will Boost Economic Cooperation

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Vietnamese Prime Minister Phan Van Khai agreed during their meeting that Putin's visit to Hanoi last March had been crucial for boosting bilateral relations, according to Putin's spokesman Alexei Gromov. The leaders of Russia and Vietnam are participating in the annual conference of the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Shanghai. Putin and Phan Van Khai were satisfied to note that a significant part of the March agreements had been realized. In particular, substantial advance was achieved in the sphere of joint oil extraction. Putin reaffirmed that the Russian side would actively participate in further development and in setting up new joint enterprises in the sphere of power engineering. These and other issues of boosting the trade-economic cooperation are due to be discussed at the bilateral intergovernmental commission's session this autumn. Among other issues discussed at the meeting was handover of the technical facilities at the former Russian Cam Ranh naval base to Vietnam.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
