HA NOI (VNS) – President Truong Tan Sang said farewell to the outgoing Qatari Ambassador to Viet Nam, Mohamed Bin Jaber Abdullah Alsulaiti, in Ha Noi yesterday.
The President praised the ambassador's three-year mission, which he said contributed significantly to the co-operation between the two countries on trade, economy, labour and investment, most notably Qatar's US$1 billion oil refinery project in Viet Nam.
Sang proposed the two partners continue their exchange of high-ranking delegations to strengthen the mutual ties.
He also said he hoped Qatar would support Viet Nam's candidacy for the UN Economic and Social Council in 2016-18, the UN Security Council in 2020-21 and UNESCO's Executive Council in 2015-19.
Sang asked the ambassador to extend an invitation to the King of Qatar to visit Viet Nam.
The Qatari envoy confirmed Qatar's support for Viet Nam's candidacy for its desired positions at the UN. — VNS
