Within the framework of his official visit to Russia from September 5 to 8, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met with leading officials from Russian oil and gas groups Gazprom and Zarubezneft on September 7, both of which have established effective cooperation with Vietnam, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

The State-run news agency quoted the Party General Secretary as telling the Russian oil and gas giants that Vietnam will create the best possible conditions for Russian enterprises to enter or expand their operations in the country.

He also expressed a belief that cooperation projects between the two sides will reap the desirable outcomes and be to the benefit of both.

Cooperation in the field of oil and gas, as well as in energy, he went on, is of strategic significance in bilateral relations and he spoke highly of the cooperation between the groups and their Vietnamese partners.

Officials from the two groups said they are happy at recent achievement in relations between the two countries and thanked Vietnam for facilitating their operations. They also expressed a desire to continue long-term cooperation with their Vietnamese partners and to broaden cooperation to other fields such as electricity generation, environmental protection, and human resources training.
