"Vietnam is actively leading discussions on regional peace and security in ASEAN, as the organization's chair. Vietnam is quite successful despite the Covid-19 influence and the country shares a common perception with Japan about freedom of navigation, respect for rules, and free trade in the free and open Indo-Pacific region.These are the reasons Prime Minister Suga chose Vietnam as the first stop on the first trip, "said spokesperson Yoshida Tomoyuki.
Tomoyuki added that, in addition to the role of ASEAN Chairman, Vietnam was also a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council which was playing an important role in the international arena. Therefore, Japanese Prime Minister Suga wanted to emphasize that Vietnam was a key partner in promoting an open and free Indo-Pacific region. Mr. Suga also wanted to send a message to the Vietnamese people that two countries have great potential for cooperation in the future.
"Prime Minister Suga stresses that the relationship between Vietnam and Japan is the strongest ever and Vietnam is a key partner of Japan in Southeast Asia," said Yoshida Tomoyuki.
