HA NOI — The Polish Government attaches great importance to developing its traditional relations and multifaceted co-operation with Viet Nam, Polish officials told Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son at a meeting last week.
Son, who was on a working visit to Poland from April 8-10 at the invitation of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, held a political consultation with his counterpart Katarzyna Kacperczyk, and met with a number of other Polish officials.
Polish officials said that Poland would enhance links with Viet Nam at international forums, especially the United Nations, the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and within the ASEAN-European Union (EU) co-operation, affirming that Poland supported the rapid completion of negotiations towards signing the EU-Viet Nam free trade agreement (EVFTA).
The two sides highlighted the increasingly fruitful development of trade and investment co-operation between the two countries, while agreeing with the plan to set up an inter-governmental committee for Viet Nam-Poland economic co-operation.
In regards to East Sea related-issues, Poland asserted that it continued to back the resolution of disputes through peaceful means in line with international law, and supported the role played by international communities, especially the UN, in mitigating these disputes. — VNS
