So said delegates during the workshop themed “Reflection of the 65 years of Vietnam-Indonesia relations and the way forward” held on October 26 by the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV) and the Embassy of Indonesia, gathering more than 100 delegates from ministries, agencies, research institutes, associations and businesses.

Vietnam News Agency quoted Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Quoc Dung saying that he stressed the similarities shared by the two countries as well as their time-honoured friendship.

Indonesian Deputy Foreign Minister Mahendra Siregar said apart from the close political ties, bilateral cooperation in other spheres has also proven effective.

Indonesian Ambassador Ibnu Hadi said the establishment of the strategic partnership in 2013 has lifted the bilateral ties.

According to the Vietnam News Agency, the delegates shared the view on the necessity to bolster the two nations'  pragmatic cooperation in the context of the complex developments of the international situation, the COVID-19 pandemic and an array of security issues.

Therefore, the two countries should continue to pragmatically implement the joint statement on enhancing the strategic partnership in 2018, and the action programme for 2019-2023, while stepping up high-level exchanges, strategic consultations and coordination at multilateral mechanisms.

The delegates also suggested Vietnam and Indonesia optimise their cooperation potential as well as advantages of the fourth Industrial Revolution to bring the bilateral relations forward./.
