Updated: 09:37’ - 28/09/2012

Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong held talks with Singaporean Prime Minister and Secretary General of the People’s Action Party (PAP) of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong on September 12, starting his three-day official visit to Singapore.

Both leaders expressed their delight at the development of the two countries’ relationship since the establishment of their bilateral diplomatic ties almost 40 years ago, and agreed to assign relevant agencies to complete contents for the signing of the Vietnam-Singapore strategic partnership agreement in 2013.

They also expressed concerns on recent complications in the East Sea and their wish that the parties involved settle the dispute by peaceful means. Trong thanked Singapore for its support of Vietnam’s candidacy to the UN Human Rights Council for the 2014-16 term and the UN Security Council for the 2020-21 term.

Following the talks, the two leaders witnessed the signing of three co-operation documents, including a Memorandum of Understanding on finance co-operation, the second amended protocol on double taxation avoidance and an agreement on research and training programs for high-ranking officials of the Communist Party of Vietnam.-
