The State President made the statement during receptions for Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Rwanda Louise Mushikiwabo and Guinean Foreign Minister Mamadi Toure in Hanoi on August 7.

He applauded the African ministers for their first visits to Vietnam, expressing his belief that the trips will contribute to effectively promoting bilateral relations between Vietnam and Rwanda and Guinea and the countries, thus optimising the interests of the countries.

President Quang congratulated the two countries on achievements of political stability and socio-economic development in recent times, affirming that Vietnam appreciates the role and contributions of Guinean President Anpha Conde and Rwandan President Paul Kagame as the rotating presidents of the African Union in 2017 and 2018 in promoting peace, development, regional and international integration of Africa.

He also spoke highly positive steps of development in political and economic ties, and mutual support and coordination between Vietnam and the two African countries at multilateral forums, especially the United Nations.

On the basis of sound political relations, the similarity of development level and need, Vietnam and African countries have been successfully implementing many cooperation projects on agriculture, telecommunication, health and education, President Quang said.

These are important premises for the countries to expand cooperation across fields, thus brining benefits to Vietnamese people and those in Africa, including Rwanda and Guinea.

President Quang asked the sides to enhance exchange of all-level delegations, towards deepening their cooperation and fully tapping their potential.

He also urged the sides to devise specific measures boost trade ties, and improve legal frameworks to facilitate stronger multi-faceted collaboration between Vietnam and the two countries.

With the success of Vietnam’s agricultural projects in many African countries, Vietnam is willing to share its experience with Rwanda and Guinea in the field through bilateral or multilateral cooperation, he affirmed.

The Vietnamese leader hoped that the two countries would create favourable conditions for Vietnamese investors and businesses to make their inroads in the two countries in the future.

He took the occasion to invite the Presidents of Rwanda and Guinea to visit Vietnam in the coming time.

For their part, the African ministers highlighted the traditional friendship between Rwanda and Guinea and Vietnam, saying that the three countries experienced difficult historical periods and are now on the path of development.

Agreeing with President Quang’s opinion on measures to foster the relations between Rwanda and Guinea and Vietnam, they affirmed their countries are willing to bolster cooperation with Vietnam in all fields.
