Vietnam, RoK leaders agree to step up ties in COVID-19 combat

Vietnamese Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and President Moon Jae-in of the Republic of Korea (RoK) vowed to deepen relations between political parties, legislatures and young people of the two countries and agreed that Vietnam and the RoK will step up collaboration in the COVID-19 combat and vaccine supply during their phone talks on July 15.

Vietnam attaches importance to the relationship with the RoK – which it considers an important, long-term strategic partner, Vietnamese Party leader Trong said, appreciating the fact that the RoK considers Vietnam a key partner in its New Southern Policy Plus.

He suggested the RoK further support the Vietnamese community in the country and pledged that Vietnam will continue creating favourable conditions for Korean firms to expand their operation in Vietnam.

Moon expressed his belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam headed by Trong, Vietnam will contain the pandemic well and complete socio-economic development targets set at the 13th National Party Congress./.
