NDO/VNA – President Tran Dai Quang hosted separate receptions for the Ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mozambique and the Republic of Korea (RoK) after receiving their letter of credentials on May 17.

Welcoming UAE Ambassador Obaid Al Dhaheri, President Quang expressed his satisfaction with the positive developments in their bilateral relations. The UAE is currently one of the leading trade, investment and labour partners of Vietnam in the Middle East.

He asked the new ambassador to support the two countries’ enterprises and encourage more UAE projects in Vietnam.

Ambassador Obaid Al Dhaheri affirmed that Vietnam is an important partner of the UAE in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), adding that his duty is to further develop the bilateral ties, particularly in economics and trade.

He also said that the UAE appreciates the role of Vietnam at international forums.

Receiving Mozambican Ambassador Leonardo Pene, President Quang wished him a successful working tenure, during which he hopes the ambassador would contribute to enhancing the friendship and multi-faceted cooperation between Vietnam and Mozambique.

Vietnam wants to intensify its cooperation with Mozambique in the future, especially in agriculture, transport, mining and education, he stressed.

For his part, Ambassador Pene stated that agriculture is one of the fields that Mozambique wants to tighten its cooperation with Vietnam.

He proposed organising a meeting of the Inter-Governmental Committee in July, while sharing that Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi hopes to pay a visit to Vietnam in 2019.

Meanwhile, at his reception for RoK Ambassador Kim Do-hyun, President Tran Dai Quang said he is delighted at the strong development in their bilateral relations.

He suggested that both sides step up high-level delegation exchanges to consolidate political trust in order to facilitate cooperation in other fields.

Ambassador Kim Do-hyun informed the host that the RoK President Moon Jae-in had emphasised that the RoK-Vietnam strategic cooperative partnership is a role model for the RoK’s relations with other countries, and the RoK treasures its economic, trade and investment cooperation with Vietnam.

The ambassador committed to promoting the image of Vietnam to attract more Korean investors to the country, particularly in computing and high technology.
