The two sides confirmed that maintaining peace and stability and strengthening mutual trust are core factors to ensure stable development in the Asia-Pacific region. They exchanged their opinions regarding international and regional matters of common interests. They both supported the necessity of tackling conflict by peaceful measures without the use of, or threat to use, force and with respect to international law through forums as the ASEAN - Russia Summit, ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), East Asia Summit (EAS) and ASEAN Defence Ministers’ Meeting Plus (ADMM+).

The Party chief's visit was highly spoken by Russian experts and scholars. Director of the Institute of Far Eastern Studies Sergey Luzianin said that Russia has always affirmed that Vietnam is a bridge to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), with which Russia plans to establish durable ties, he said.

Director of the Vietnam-ASEAN Research Centre Vladimir Mazyrin highlighted the characteristics of the political system in Vietnam led by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV). He also emphasised the CPV leader Nguyen Phu Trong’s personal prestige in the fight against corruption, which has been welcomed by many countries globally.

He suggested reaching for more strategic projects to fulfil the goal of lifting two-way trade to 10 billion US dollars by 2020, adding that in order to match the strategic partnership level, Russia needs to access more of Vietnam’s key projects, including those in nuclear power and metro systems.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Ngo Duc Manh expressed his belief that the two countries will score new achievements in the near future, contributing to their own development and for the peace, well-being, stability, and cooperation in the region and the world.
