President calls Russia a reliable friend of Vietnam

President Tran Dai Quang met with members of the Russia-Vietnam Friendship Association and the Russia Union of Veterans who formerly worked in Vietnam in Moscow on Wednesday.

Speaking at the meeting, President Quang, who is on an official visit to Russia, said the Association has contributed to strengthening the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

He insisted that Russia has been and will be a reliable friend to Vietnam, adding that the signing of a free trade agreement between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) will create new momentum and opportunities for Vietnam's trade with EAEU members, especially Russia, to grow.

During this visit, we and Russian leaders have continued to discuss specific measures to deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two nations while promoting our reliable political ties. The visit will benefit both peoples as well as international peace, said President Quang.

He noted he hopes the Russia-Vietnam Friendship Association will continue helping the Vietnamese community to integrate into Russia to consolidate the friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.
