Vietnam, Russia enhance communication cooperation

Deputy Minister Alexey Volin said RT (Rusia Today) channel is willing to provide VNA materials and videos covering politics, economics and culture of other countries for use on the agency’s Vnews and in other publications.

The Russian side wanted to receive Vietnamese officials in fact-finding tours of Russia’s journalism, mass media and information technology, he said.

Duong hailed the cooperation in news supply between VNA and Russian news outlets and hoped for broader partnership in communication and mass media with the Russian side.

Noting VNA’s interest in Russia’s news transmitting technologies, he said the agency will set up a Russian desk at its News for Foreign Service Department and wished that the Russian government will grant scholarships in journalism and Russian language for VNA’s reporters. 

The Russian official showed his support for VNA’s proposal, suggesting the Embassy of Russia in Vietnam acting as a coordinator in the scholarship issue.

Later on the day, the Russian official had a working session with Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Phan Tam during which they sought to step up exchanging information and ensuring cyber information security.

The two sides agreed to broaden cooperation in other fields on the basis of the trustworthy relations established by the two countries.
