Buenos Aires (VNA) – A representative from the Argentine Foreign Ministry has underscored the country’s commitment to step by step lifting cooperation with Vietnam, both bilaterally and multilaterally.

The Argentinian side praised the growth of the bilateral relations and affirmed that Vietnam is among the most important trade partners of the country in Asia.

Speaking at the event, Ambassador Dung said the bilateral comprehensive partnership has grown across fields, highlighting the State visit to Vietnam by Argentine President Mauricio Macri last February as a milestone in propelling the ties forward.
