EU states ratify cooperative pact

Updated: 10:33’ - 28/05/2012

Representatives of 27 EU member countries on May 15 ratified a partnership and cooperation agreement with Vietnam at the EU Foreign Ministers meeting in Brussels, Belgium.

The agreement, in addition to defining basic principles in Vietnam - EU relations, specifies a comprehensive cooperative framework in various fields, including trade, investment, law, peacekeeping and international security. The agreement is viewed as a valued tool to open a new chapter in bilateral relations, suited to the new status of the EU and the higher status of Vietnam in the international arena.

The agreement, which was signed by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and European Council President Jose Manuel Barroso in October 2010 after two years of negotiations, is expected to bring the relationship to a new period of greater cooperation.-
