Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang has assured Azerbaijani Minister of Energy Natig Aga Emi Olgu Aliyev that Vietnam is ready to create favourable conditions for Azerbaijan’s goods to enter the country.

During a reception in Hanoi on January 18, Quang hailed the visit at the beginning of this year, which marks the 25th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties, adding that the Vietnamese leaders always support the deepening of bilateral relations for the sake of the two peoples.

Discussing measures to boost bilateral economic, trade and investment ties, he suggested accelerating the realisation of high-level agreements and the outcomes of the first session of the Inter-Governmental Commission on Economic-Trade and Science-Technology Cooperation.

In order to lift two-way trade, Vietnam is willing to export agro-fisheries, electronics and computers to Azerbaijan, he said, adding that both sides should consider resuming cooperation in education-training and expanding connections in culture and tourism as well as launching a direct flight between Hanoi and Baku.

He said Vietnam wants Azerbaijan to continue assisting the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group in joining more oil and gas exploitation projects in the country.

Minister Olgu Aliyev, for his part, thanked the Vietnamese State and Government for creating favourable conditions for the session, during which, both sides reached a number of deals.

He agreed with the President’s proposed measures to intensify bilateral partnership, especially in oil and gas, science-technology, culture and tourism.-VNA
