Hanoi (VNA) – The Times of India on December 16 ran an article saying that Vietnamese National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue’s ongoing visit brings an ambitious agenda covering various aspects, not only bilateral ties but also regional and global issues.

The visit takes place at a time when Vietnam and India are celebrating the fifth anniversary of comprehensive strategic partnership and preparing for the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties next year.

In an interview granted to the Indian press, Hue said his visit aims for three goals, including further deepening bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership and ties between the two legislatures in particular, affording both sides a chance to learn more about respective socio-economic development and foreign policies, and exchanging viewpoints on global issues of shared concern and seeking solutions to them, thus contributing to peace, security, stability and development in the region and the world.

The article said the trip marks a new milestone in bilateral ties, not only in national defence but also in economy and maritime security.

It added that Vietnam’s economic growth during the pandemic is a miracle and the country is emerging as an important production hub. Vietnam – India strategic ties hold great potential in ensuring peace, security and stability in the Indo-Pacific./.
