HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính will pay an official visit to Japan from November 22-25 at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
PM Chính will be the first foreign leader PM Kishida Fumio will host since he took office earlier last month, announced Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan Matsuno Hirokazu on Friday.
"Việt Nam is a partner to realise a free and open Indo-Pacific. We expect to further strengthen Japan-Việt Nam relations and build personal trust between the leaders," Matsuno said at a press conference.
The two PMs also held talks in Glasgow early this month when they attended the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).
At the meeting, the leaders agreed to closely co-operate for the sake of the development of the Việt Nam-Japan relations and people’s interests, thereby contributing to common prosperity of the region and the world. They also agreed on prompt arrangement of visits by the countries’ high-ranking leaders. – VNS
