NDO/VNA – Vietnam attaches importance to developing relations with African friends, including the Republic of Guinea, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh said on August 7.

At a reception for Guinea’s Foreign Minister Mamadi Toure in Hanoi, Deputy PM Minh touched upon specific measures to beef up cooperation between the two countries in such areas as agriculture, telecommunications, education and health care.

He also talked about the plan to expand the bilateral collaboration in realms in which the two countries have potential like transportation, mining and oil and gas, facilitating the exchanges between the people and businesses of the two sides.

For his part, Mamadi Toure affirmed that Guinea treasures ties with Vietnam, saying he wishes that the bilateral cooperation would be expanded via the Party and National Assembly channels and people-to-people exchanges.

Political trust should serve as the foundation for economic links between Vietnam and Guinea, he said.

Host and guest consented to deepen the bilateral friendship, advance the two-way trade which is now standing at nearly US$ 160 million, and encourage Vietnamese businesses to invest in Guinea.
