BAKU (VNS)  — The Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and Azerbaijan's Aslan Aslanov (AzerTAc) signed a co-operation agreement on the sidelines of the International Humanitarian Forum in Baku, Azerbaijan, yesterday.

Under the agreement, the two sides will provide each other news and photos, enhance exchanges of delegations and co-ordinate at regional and international forums.
