HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung met with the newly accredited ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Myanmar in Ha Noi, yesterday.

Welcoming the UAE Ambassador Khalid Ibrahim Abdulaziz Shohail Al-Qahtani, Dung proposed fostering win-win bilateral cooperation through exchange visits and mutual support at international forums, especially the United Nations.

He called for stronger trade and investment ties based on each side's strengths, besides joint collaboration in matters related to labour issues.
