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.
