For his part, Chinh reiterated Vietnam’s foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, and multilateralisation and diversification of relations, being a responsible member of the international community, and intensively and extensively integrating into the world. Vietnam will work harder to continuously consolidate and expand the strategic partnership, he pledged, Nhan Dan cited.

The two leaders affirmed that they attach special importance to the need to soon complete negotiations on the boundary of exclusive economic zones between the two countries, in order to create a legal corridor for the countries to enhance cooperation and reduce illegal fishing cases, thus creating a model in dealing with differences at sea between nations, contributing to protecting peace, cooperation, and development in the region.
