HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has reiterated Viet Nam's willingness to work with Brunei, Malaysia, and Singapore to conclude the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations at the earliest.

He issued the statement while receiving new Ambassador of Brunei Pengiran Haji Sahari Bin Pengiran Haji Salleh in Ha Noi yesterday.

The government leader proposed holding the first session of the Viet Nam – Brunei Joint Committee soon, during which both sides will seek ways of tapping their strengths in the areas of trade, investment, farming, and aquaculture, among others.

Highlighting the importance of maintaining peace, stability, freedom, and maritime and aviation security in the East Sea, PM Dung suggested Brunei and the relevant countries to continue asserting ASEAN's stance, mentioned in its Declaration on Six-point Principles on the East Sea.

He called for peaceful settlement of disputes, which is in line with the international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, while fully realising the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea in earnest and soon reaching the Code of Conduct in the East Sea.

The ambassador vowed to liaison with Vietnamese and Brunei agencies, during his working term, to further enhance bilateral ties. — VNS
