During a meeting with the President on June 7, Phong conveyed President Phuc’s regards to the Pakistani leader, which highlight the message that Vietnam wants to further promote cooperation with Pakistan in many fields, especially economic and trade ties, according to Vietnam Plus.

The diplomat expressed his pleasure and honour at receiving the assignment in Pakistan - a country that is making positive steps forward in economic development, gradually stabilising in politics and security, and playing an important role in the South Asian region and the world.

He promised to do his utmost to promote bilateral cooperation through maintaining and promoting existing cooperation mechanisms and political and economic consultations.

The two countries should expand cooperation in trade and investment and fields such as culture, education, sports, tourism, and the training of high-quality workers, Phong stressed.

They will celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties in 2022, he said, expressing his belief that under the leadership of senior leaders, the Vietnam - Pakistan relationship will develop strongly in the time to come.

For his part, President Alvi congratulated Vietnamese leaders and people on important socio-economic achievements in recent years, and especially the success of the 13th National Party Congress, the election of deputies to the 15th National Assembly, and its positive results in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

He expressed his belief that the Vietnamese ambassador will fulfil his responsibilities, further contributing to developing the friendship and multifaceted cooperation between the two countries, especially economic and trade ties.
