State President Sang welcomed the visiting Kazakh President and said he hopes the visit will deepen the Việt Nam-Kazakhstan relationship.

The State leader said as the relations, especially in trade and economy, are far from tapping the two countries’ potential. Việt Nam hopes to raise bilateral relationship to a new level for mutual benefit.

The two countries are prepared to negotiate a free trade agreement between Việt Nam and the Kazakhstan – Russia – Belarus customs union.

President Nazarbayev said he was pleased to pay the first official visit to Việt Nam since he was elected President of Kazakhstan in 1990. He highlighted the traditional friendship between the two countries and said he hopes to enhance ties with Vietnam in all fields.

Kazakhstan considers Việt Nam an important economic partner and wants to boost multi-faceted cooperation with the Southeast Asian nation, the Kazakhstani President said.

He also expressed his hopes that Vietnam will help strengthen ties between Kazakhstan and ASEAN.

The two leaders agreed to cooperate closely with each other in multilateral, regional, and international forums for peace, stability in Asia and the world. They also exchanged views on bilateral and international issues of mutual concern.

After the talks, the Presidents witnessed the signing of a Mutual Judicial Assistance Agreement in Civil Matters and Double Taxation Avoidance; a Protocol on Amendments to the Agreement on Cooperation in Education; an Agreement on Cooperation in Tourism; and another between Việt Nam’s Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Kazakhstan on cooperation in civil aviation, and a Memorandum of Understanding between Kazakhstan’s Almaty City’s administration and the Hồ Chí Minh City People’s Committee
