President Trong warmly welcomed the visit of the Malaysian government leader, wishing the visit a success so as to contribute to enhancing the strategic partnership between the two countries.  

He reiterated Vietnam’s consistent policy of attaching importance to the strategic partnership with Malaysia, and urged the countries to intensify cooperation in all fields, especially those with potential such as economy, trade, investment and people-to-people exchange. 

The Vietnamese leader also proposed that the two countries strengthen collaboration in the framework of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other regional and international forums for the sake of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world. 

PM Mahathir informed the host on the outcomes of his talks with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, noting that the two sides had affirmed the resolve to continue bolstering economic and trade links as well as to effectively coordinate at regional and international forums, first of all ASEAN. 

He stressed that the two countries share many similarities and both hold important roles and positions in the region, which are favourable conditions for them to coordinate closely in both bilateral and multilateral issues, including the East Sea issue, thus contributing to maintaining peace, stability and cooperation in the region, as well as to building a strong and united ASEAN Community. 

The Malaysian PM expressed his wish to further promote comprehensive cooperation between the two countries in all fields, and increase the exchange of delegations, particularly high-ranking ones, and people-to-people exchange for sharing experience in governance and corruption prevention and combat.
