Prime Minister trip hoped to strengthen Vietnam – Kuwait ties

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc will pay an official visit to Kuwait from October 26 � 27, the first trip to the Middle East nation by a Vietnamese leader in 10 years, which is expected to help solidify relations between the two countries.

The visit will be an important occasion for both sides to review their bilateral relations and discuss ways to drive cooperation forwards, especially in the fields of energy, oil and gas, agriculture, labour and tourism. The two countries will also discuss regional and international issues of mutual concern. With diplomatic ties established on January 10, 1976, Kuwait was the first member of the Gulf Cooperation Council and also one of the first Middle Eastern countries to form a diplomatic relationship with Vietnam.
