HA NOI (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang has called for more parliamentary and people-to-people contacts with Turkey during a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ha Noi yesterday.

Sang said the two nations should promote co-operation across trade and tourism in particular.

Cavusoglu, who is on a visit at the invitation of Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh, said his government wanted to develop stronger ties with Viet Nam.

He conveyed Turkish President Recep Erdogan's invitation to the Vietnamese President to visit Turkey.

At talks earlier in the day, Minh and Cavusoglu agreed to co-ordinate with each other at international forums and organisations, especially the United Nations.

They also agreed to lift two-way trade to US$3 billion by 2016. Both sides committed to efforts to broadening collaboration in potential fields such as labour, tourism, agriculture, and education-training.

Stressing the need to thoroughly prepare for the seventh meeting of the Inter-governmental Committee, they agreed to fine-tune the legal framework for bilateral partnership by stepping up negotiations for the signing of a number of agreements, including a customs agreement and memoranda of understanding on forestry and water resource management. — VNS
