Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba left Hanoi on November 21, concluding his four-day State visit to Vietnam at the invitation of President Truong Tan Sang.

During his stay, he held talks with President Truong Tan Sang and met with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

At the meetings, the two sides evaluated the outcomes of cooperation in the past time and reached agreement on measures to further boost their multifaceted cooperation.

They held that despite seeing positive progress in recent time, multifaceted cooperation between the two countries still does not reflect all their potential or meet the expectations of the two sides’ leaders and people.

To take better advantage of cooperation potential, both sides’ leaders were unanimous in fostering intimate political ties through delegation exchanges at all levels, people-to-people diplomatic activities and the twinned relations between major Vietnamese and Namibian cities, in order to raise the two peoples’ mutual understanding.

The continuation of agricultural cooperation projects and calling on the involvement of the private sector in the area were agreed at the meetings.

The two sides agreed to direct relevant ministries and agencies to actively collaborate with each other to set up specific plans to further boost cooperation in the fields of investment, trade, education and training, health, tourism and aviation.

They also shared views on regional and international issues of their common concern, expressing their pleasure with Vietnam and Namibia’s election as members of the United Nations Human Rights Council in the 2014-2016 term and affirming the continuation of close collaboration at regional and international forums and in the framework of South-South cooperation.

During his trip, President Hifikepunye Pohamba witnessed the signing of cooperation agreements between Vietnam and Namibia in the sphere of diplomacy and agriculture, and made fact-finding tours to cultural and economic facilities in Hanoi.-VNA
