HA NOI — Viet Nam and Iraq should work together to find a way to increase the bilateral trade turnover, President Truong Tan Sang told outgoing Iraqi ambassador Faris Abdulkarim Zarawi Al-Ani in Ha Noi yesterday.
Sang also said that Iraq was one of Viet Nam's key trade partners in the Middle East. He expected the Iraqi government to facilitate the efficient functioning of Vietnamese enterprises there, particularly those specialising in oil and gas.
The ambassador thanked the Vietnamese Government for helping him throughout his term in office. He also said Iraq would support Viet Nam re-opening its embassy in Baghdad in the near future. — VNS
