Belarus-Vietnam cooperation has always benefited and will benefit both countries, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Nguyen Van Ngu.

“I am glad to see you in a good mood. It means that not everything is so bad in our world. There are places where it is quiet and peaceful. I mean our friendly nation of Vietnam. The people of Vietnam deserved peace, calm and progress in their country,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

According to the President, Vietnam went through a lot in the past century. “When it comes to Vietnam, I always recall the struggle of the Vietnamese people against those who wanted to destroy Vietnam and establish a foothold in this blissful place, a strategic country of Southeast Asia. We were together back then. We fought together, we helped Vietnam. And this history of joint fight is the foundation of bilateral relations. I want to assure you that we will always cherish these times of joint struggle that brought peace to the Vietnamese people, which later paved the way to today’s prosperity of your country,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

“We will always do our best to help Vietnam to remain on the growth track. It is not only because we love the Vietnamese people, but also because it makes economic sense. This pragmatism is characteristic of the Belarusian people and the Vietnamese. This cooperation has always brought and will bring benefits. We are determined to promote economic cooperation. This is the pillar of our relations,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

“We will be working to transfer our technologies to Vietnam and create joint ventures there to produce engineering products,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

According to the head of state, Belarus is  ready to expand the supply of food products and mineral fertilizers, which is especially relevant now.

According to the President, Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko plans to visit Vietnam. “The visit will offer an opportunity to review in greater detail  bilateral relations over the past years and outline cooperation plans for the future. Vietnam has always been our friend and will remain so,” the Belarusian leader assured.
