HCM City (VNA) – A seminar on international cooperation in a changing world wrapped up in Ho Chi Minh City on February 26 after two days of sitting.

Co-organised by the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV)’s Institute for Foreign Policies and Strategic Studies and the Russian-based Valdai Discussion Club, the event attracted political researchers, experts from universities and research institutes, and representatives from Vietnamese ministries and agencies.

Their discussions focused on challenges and opportunities in matters of security in Asia, multilateral cooperation in Asia and Asia-Europe, and the prospects of Vietnam-Russia ties after 2019.

Speaking at the event, DAV Director Nguyen Vu Tung said Vietnam-Russia ties are founded on the back of sentiment and mutual trust, looking likely to thrive in the near future.

He suggested that both sides share their concerns; discuss their relations with third parties like ASEAN, US, and China; as well as focus their joint work on new technology and innovation in both bilateral and multilateral aspects.

Chairman of the Board of the club’s Foundation for Development and Support Andrey Bystritskiy proposed opening up new opportunities for bilateral exchanges as well as forming dialogues to seek new measures to boost ties. –VNA
