State President Nguyen Minh Triet received leaders attending the 17th ASEAN Summit and related summits, including the East Asia Summit (EAS) in Hanoi on October 30.

He confirmed Vietnam has continued to strengthen bilateral and multilateral relations with countries in the region and the world, contributing to the development of good relations between ASEAN and its partners.

Vietnam hopes ASEAN’s partners will continue cooperating and assisting the region in carrying out its goal of building a successful ASEAN community, and support the bloc’s key role in regional forums, he noted.

Earlier, President Triet welcomed the President of the Republic of Korea (RoK) Lee Myung-bak, who was attending the 17th ASEAN Summit and related summits.

He applauded the Korean President for joining the events and affirmed that the relationship between Vietnam and the RoK is developing well, and the two sides should push for high-ranking visits to reinforce trust and bilateral cooperative opportunities.

Vietnam wants Korean businesses to increase investment in infrastructure, high technology and diplomacy to strengthen the relationship between the two countries, he said.        

President Triet highly appreciated the fact that President Lee Myung-bak paid attention to and dealt with the sad situations of some Vietnamese brides in Korea, and Vietnam wants both sides to exchange ideas to build a legal framework to protect Vietnamese brides in the RoK. He emphasised that coordination to resolve the situation recently demonstrated mutual trust, sharing and understanding.

The Korean President confirmed his visit to Vietnam last year had resolved many issues and helped the two countries overcome difficulties. He said the Korean people are very sad about the unfortunate events involving Vietnamese brides. The Korean Government has added regulations concerning this issue and the Korean people also increased their awareness and now pay more attention to the situation of foreign brides.

He said at present, there are 14 countries providing labourers to the RoK and Vietnam has the largest number, Korean businesses always want to use Vietnamese labourers because they are industrious and highly-skilled. He also said he believed that, as an intelligent and hard-working country, Vietnam will soon become one of the strongest in the South East Asian region.        

President Lee Myung-buk invited President Triet to visit the RoK and said he hopes the two countries will cooperate in international forums.

On the occasion, the Korean President informed the Vietnamese President that the RoK had finished procedures to prepare for importing dragon fruit, one of Korea’s favourite fruits, from Vietnam.
