Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will pay an official visit to Vietnam next week to boost the strategic partnership between the two countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.
The visit from April 5-7 will be made at the invitation of his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung.
It aims to reinforce the Russia-Vietnam comprehensive partnership and demonstrate the trust between the two countries’ high-ranking leaders, the ministry said in a release.
During the visit, the two sides will also review the implementation of cooperative categories of top priority in 2014 and discuss cooperation plans in 2015. They will also talk about regional and international issues that both are interested in.
It will be the third Vietnamese visit by Medvedev. He made the first visit in 2010 as Russia's president, and the second in 2012 as its prime minister.
