Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Hai Binh declared Canada’s recent end to a probe into alleged subsidies on imported Vietnamese steel oil pipelines a sound decision that suits the economic interests of export countries as well as Canadian exporters and consumers.

It reflects the status of the Canadian domestic market, he told a regular press briefing in Hanoi on May 14.

He added that trade disputes should be settled based on international legal regulations and in line with the spirit of trade liberalisation, multilateral commitments and economic-trade ties between Vietnam and Canada.-VNA
