Vietnam, China discuss cooperation in coping with COVID-19 new developments

The Chinese Embassy in Vietnam held a press teleconference in Hanoi on Thursday  to discuss bilateral ties and international cooperation in the fight against COVID-19.

Chinese Minister-Counselor Yin Haihong said 2020 is a special year for bilateral relations as the two countries are celebrating 70 years of their diplomatic ties.

In January, Vietnamese Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong held phone talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, during which they agreed to enhance political trust and promote traditional solidarity and friendliness between the two nations for the sake of their people and for peace, cooperation and development in the region and the world, Yin said. She added that the two leaders also agreed to settle existing problems in bilateral relations.

Haihong said amid the COVID-19 pandemic, senior leaders of the two nations informed each other about the outcomes of fighting the disease in each country and discussed cooperation in coping with its new developments.

Ms. Yin answered reporters’ questions about measures to recover the economy after COVID-19 and efforts to boost future trade and investment between Vietnam and China.
