Vietnam, Paraguay tap cooperative potentials

Vietnam wants to promote relations with Paraguay in various fields, particularly trade and culture, based on sound political relations between the two countries.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay, Dang Xuan Dung, made the confirmation while meeting with Paraguayan Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Terumi Matsuo De Claverol on Monday after presenting a copy of the Vietnamese President's letter of credentials.

Lauding Vietnam's socio-economic achievements in recent years, De Claverol stressed that Vietnam and the South American country pose huge potential for cooperation in multi-faceted fields, especially trade. She shared concern over food security in the context of climate change and expressed the wish to work with Vietnam in the field. She reaffirmed Paraguay's support for Vietnam's stance on addressing disputes at sea by peaceful means in line with international laws and the United Nations Charter.

Ambassador Dung has been leading a Vietnamese business delegation on a trade promotion trip in Paraguay and to attend the nation's agricultural fair.
