HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính departed on Sunday for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), and for visits to the UK and France from October 31 - November 5, at the invitation of his British and French counterparts Boris Johnson and Jean Castex.
His participation at the conference will extend a strong message on a responsible, proactive and active Việt Nam that is working with the international community in settling global challenges on climate change; and demonstrates determination, efforts as well as difficulties and challenges facing Việt Nam in coping with the phenomenon.
The PM’s working visit to the UK and official visit to France will help consolidate the political trust and further deepen multi-faceted cooperation; thus making relations with those two strategic partners more practical and effective in every field, especially in those of healthcare, pharmaceuticals and vaccine diplomacy.
They will also continue to realise the Party and State’s foreign policy of independence, self-mastery, peace, cooperation and development; diversification and multilateralisation in foreign relations; proactive and active international integration; and being a friend, a trusted partner and a responsible member of the international community.
Through the meetings with the Vietnamese communities in those two countries, the visits will help build up the all-nation solidarity and strength and manifest gratitude to them for their recent support to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Việt Nam. — VNS
