President welcomes new ambassadors

HA NOI (VNS)— State President Truong Tan Sang yesterday accepted the credentials from new ambassadors from throughout the world and voiced support for the diplomats in carrying out their missions in Viet Nam.

The new ambassadors represented Pakistan, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Myanmar, Thailand, Djibouti, the Marshall Islands and Suriname.

Sang noted that Viet Nam and the ambassadors' countries need to step up their economic and investment cooperation for the sake of their people's prosperity.

The diplomats vowed to work to improve their countries' ties with Viet Nam, suggesting that they increase high-level exchanges and carefully review commitments for effective implementation in the future.

Brunei Ambassador Pengiran Haji Sahari bin Pengiran Haji Salleh expressed his hope to learn from Vietnam's experience in agricultural development and boost cooperation with Viet Nam in culture, education, tourism and labour.

UAE Ambassador Khalid Ibrahim Abdulaziz Shohail Al-Qahtani said the two countries could cooperate in trade, investment and labour, while Kazak Ambassador Beketzhan Zhumakhanov underlined the need to create a legal foundation to allow for additional cooperation.

Also, the Egyptian diplomat, Youssef Kamal Boutros Hanna, said his country would seek to study Viet Nam's experience in economic development.

Thai Ambassador Panyarak Poolthup confirmed that his country would seek to increase its trade with Viet Nam to reach US$15 billion.

Meanwhile, the Ambassador of Djibouti, Ahmed Araita Ali, stated his country will become a gateway for Vietnamese goods to be shipped to African and Arab markets. He hoped to receive more investment from Viet Nam in agriculture, aquaculture, healthcare and education.

Marshall Islands Ambassador Tom Kijiner, for his part, emphasised the necessity of signing a visa exemption agreement to increase exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.

Also, the Ambassador of Suriname, Lloyd Lucien Pinas, voiced his desire to acquire Viet Nam's assistance in developing agriculture, along with small and medium-sized enterprises.

 

Pakistan's Ambassador to Vietnam Zaigham Uddin Azam highly appreciated the long-lasting bilateral ties and affirmed to strengthen the co-operation between the two countries. — VNS
