VTV.vn - President Truong Tan Sang spoke highly of cooperative relations between Vietnam and the UK in the fields of politics, economics and defence-security during a meeting with the visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron in Hanoi on July 29.

The State President Truong Tan Sang expressed his belief that trade relations between the two countries will be lifted up when Vietnam and the European Union (EU) signs their free trade agreement (FTA). He also thanked the UK for its support in the East Sea issue that has contributed to maintaining peace and stability in the Asian-Pacific region.

For his part, UK Prime Minister Cameron underscored that the planned EU - Vietnam FTA has a crucial role in consolidating trade relations between Vietnam and the UK.

The stable investment climate in Vietnam will create favourable conditions for foreign enterprises to land their investment in the country, Cameron said, hoping that two sides will further cooperation to attract more investments. The UK will maintain its support for Vietnam through international organisations such as the World Bank (WB), he added.

Regarding the East Sea issue, the UK Prime Minister said that the UK’s stance is clear as stated in the declaration of the Group of Seven (G7).
