Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam considers Kuwait one of its top partners in the Middle East, President Tran Dai Quang said when receiving Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabad in Hanoi on May 6.

The President lauded the outcomes of talks between the two Prime Ministers which reached numerous measures to boost multifaceted bilateral ties.

He expressed his appreciation for Kuwait’s support in development aid and oil cooperation that Vietnam has received for many years.

Vietnam and Kuwait together should engage more in the fields of education-training, politics, trade and multilateral diplomacy, Quang noted, adding that he will continue directing the implementation of the agreement sealed by both governments.

Human resources and agro-fishery-forestry production are fields of Vietnamese strength, which matches demand in the Kuwaiti market, the President said.

Agreeing with his host, the Kuwaiti PM said his country wants to stimulate the traditional partnership with Vietnam.

The favourable conditions created by the Vietnamese Government for Kuwaiti enterprises operating in the country is the driving force behind Kuwait’s efforts to lift bilateral trade revenue with Vietnam, he stressed.

He congratulated President Quang on his recent election as head of the Vietnamese State and passed along an invitation from Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, inviting the Vietnamese President to visit the Middle East nation.

Concerning current situations in the Middle East, both host and guest agreed on the need to continue with efforts to restore peace, security and end conflicts, as these are key to regional development.-VNA
