HA NOI (VNS)— Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh met Sudanese State Minister for Foreign Affairs Kamal-Eddin Ismail Saeed in Ha Noi yesterday, when he urged greater efforts for co-operation.

He said for cooperation to improve, there should be an increase in the exchange of delegations and meetings among businesses.

Also, to complete the legal framework for bilateral cooperation, the deputy PM urged the acceleration of negotiations and signing of important agreements, such as those on avoidance of double taxation, investment encouragement and protection, banking co-operation and visa exemption for diplomatic passport holders.

Minh also proposed that Sudan create more favourable conditions for the national oil and gas group PetroVietnam and the telecoms enterprise Viettel to invest in Sudan.

For his part, the minister from Sudan informed his host that Sudan will grant 10 Arabic language study scholarships to Vietnamese students.

Sudan supports Viet Nam's candidacy to the United Nations Security Council for the 2020-21 term, the diplomat affirmed.
