HA NOI  (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung yesterday left Viet Nam for Japan to attend the seventh Mekong-Japan Summit being held in Tokyo from today to Saturday.

The Prime Minister's visit was made at the invitation of his Japanese counterpart, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with the aim to boost co-operation between sub-Mekong countries and Japan, and provide intensive support for socio-economic development in the region.

Dung also aimed to confirm Viet Nam's commitment to Mekong-Japan co-operation and to strengthening a lasting, friendly partnership between Viet Nam and Japan. The summit brings together leaders from Japan and the five countries the Mekong River traverses – Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam.

The sixth event was held in Myanmar in November 2014. —VNS
