The Vietnamese government always wishes to promote cooperative relations with Qatar to bring practical benefits for the two countries.
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung affirmed in Hanoi on April 19 during his meeting with Qatar Ambassador to Vietnam Mohammed Jaber Abdullah Al-Sulaiti.
He said he hopes that Ambassador will make an active contribution to promoting the friendship between Vietnam and Qatar during his working term in Vietnam.
PM Dung insisted on promoting cooperative relations between the two nations, especially in the field of trade, saying that it was necessary for both countries to soon sign an agreement on visa exemption to foster bilateral cooperation in the fields of banking, oil and gas, energy and labour export.
For his part, the ambassador expressed his wish that Vietnam would create favourable conditions for effectively implementing the trade agreements between the two countries in the near future.
