Moscow (VNA) Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Ngo Duc Manh had a meeting with representatives of social organisations and friendship associations at the Vietnamese Embassy on February 6 to seek to bolster the friendship between the two countries.

The meeting brought together Russian war invalids, military experts and technicians who accompanied Vietnamese people and army during wartime, contributing to national reunification.

Although they are retired, the Russian friends still have kept a close watch on Vietnam’s development, and contributed, in their own capacity, to consolidating the bilateral friendship.

Addressing the function, Ambassador Manh thanked the Russian friends’ support for Vietnam, considering their sentiments a valuable asset of the two counties.

Vietnam and Russia boast a lot of opportunities to step up their cooperation, especially in economy, Manh said, expressing his hope that during his term, he could have opportunities to advance the relationship across fields, helping to fulfill the bilateral trade goal of 10 billion USD in 2020.

The diplomat is scheduled to have working sessions with representatives from scientific, economic, political and press circles of Russia in the next few days.-VNA
