Informed the Nicaraguan side about Viet Nam’s political, socio-economic situation; response to COVID-19; and policy on external relations, Deputy Minister Dung stated Viet Nam wants to strengthen its friendship and cooperation with Nicaragua on the basis of their traditional solidarity and amity; their sharing of basic principles of international relations; and their common interests in national development.

He also praised the good traditional relationship between the Communist Party of Viet Nam and the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) of Nicaragua.

For her part, Arlette Marenco lauded Viet Nam’s achievements in COVID-19 prevention and control and socio-economic development.

Nicaragua wants to foster friendship and multifaceted collaboration with Viet Nam based on the countries’ sound relations, she stated.

The two officials agreed that the two sides should closely work together to maintain the growth momentum of the ties and facilitate mutual visits at all levels.

They said the two foreign ministries will flexibly and effectively deploy their political consultation mechanism; promote dialogue and connection between the nations’ ministries, sectors and businesses; create a legal framework for trade and investment promotion; and encourage bilateral cooperation in potential areas.

The sides discussed international and regional matters of common concern and agreed to further support each other at international organisations and multilateral forums of which both countries are members, particularly the UN.
