NDO/VNA – Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Ngo Duc Manh had a meeting with of Vice Rector of the Lomonosov Moscow State University (MGU), the top ranked university in Russia, Sergey Sakhrai, in Moscow on March 2, to discuss new cooperation directions.

As MGU is directly subordinate to the Russian Government and not under the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, it is not among the universities that have joined in training programmes with Vietnam.

Ambassador Manh, a former student of MGU, highly valued the school’s training quality, adding that he wants to expand the opportunities for Vietnamese undergraduates and postgraduates to study at this top university in Russia.

At the meeting, the two sides mentioned a project on providing legal knowledge aid for Vietnamese students. Through an agreement between MGU’s law faculty and the Vietnamese Embassy, students from the Southeast Asian nation can receive free legal aid whenever they have problems while studying in Russia.

Ambassador Manh applauded this idea and promised to step up the realisation of this initiative in the near future, noting that the number of Vietnamese students here increases by nearly 1,000 each year. Such a practical support will be very helpful for both students and managerial agencies.

During the event, the two sides also discussed other directions for specialised cooperation such as in economy and auditing. They agreed to promote the organisation of forums, conferences and consultations to help to enhance Vietnam-Russia relations.
