Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and the high-ranking government delegation of Vietnam left Copenhagen on Dec. 18, ending their visits to Russia and Denmark, where he attended the 15th UN climate change conference.
PM Dung’s working visit to Russia reaped important results with a number of agreements signed covering cooperation in oil and gas, energy, mining, security and national defense.
Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Thanh Son said the PM’s Russia visit was a more-than-expected success, affirming clearly the mutual trust between the two states and marking a turning-point and a new peak in Vietnam-Russia relations.
PM Dung’s attendance and his speech delivered at the plenary session of the UN climate change conference were also lauded by the international community.
According to Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Pham Khoi Nguyen, the PM’s speech was ranked among the first 10 receiving appreciation from the world public.
Nguyen said on the sidelines of the conference, PM Dung and Vietnamese accompanying ministers held more than 30 bilateral meetings with leaders of participating nations and international organizations.
At these meetings, the government leader and officials presented Vietnam’s views in response to climate change and rallied more funding for its efforts in this field.
