Vietnam invites Sudan to boost bilateral economic ties


October 8, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — Vietnam’s Vice President said Hanoi and Khartoum should boost bilateral cooperation in the areas of economic and trade to fully tap their potential.

Mrs. Nguyen Thi Doan made her remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with the visiting Sudanese State Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Karti, who is on a four-day visit to Vietnam from October 5.

Vice State President Doan said she was pleased with developing bilateral relations over the past time and thanked the Sudanese people for their support for Vietnam’s struggles for independence in the past as well as its current national development.

She said that despite the geological distance, both Vietnam and Sudan have many things in common. Their people cherish peace and want to build prosperous and beautiful nations.

Since January 2008, Vietnam is non-permanent member of the Security Council for two year term that will end in December 2009.

Mr. Karti attended a Vietnam-Sudan business forum and visited several economic and cultural establishments in Hanoi.

Since several years the two countries seek to develop economic ties. During a visit held by Sudanese presidential aide Nafi Ali Nafi to Vietnam In March 2007, the two countries agreed to promote friendly ties and multifaceted co-operation.

The Sudanese state minister held during his four-day visit talks with Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Doan Xuan Hung and met with leaders of several ministries and agencies that have established cooperative ties with Sudan.

They discussed measures to step up bilateral cooperation in many areas, including agriculture, trade and oil and gas. They agreed that both countries should make a greater effort to strengthen economic-trade ties.
