The long term cooperation and the highly mutual trust
between Vietnam and Russia allow the two nations’ oil and gas companies to
strengthen cooperative ties, the Russian News Agency Ria Novosti quoted Foreign
Ministry Spokeperson Maria Zakharova as saying on March 11.
She made the statement after the Rosneft Vietnam Company, an affiliate of
Russia’s Rosneft Group, started exploratory drilling offshore Vietnam’s coast
early this month.
Zakharova highlighted the many years of cooperation in fuel and energy between
Vietnam and Russia as one of the pillars in their strategic and comprehensive
partnership, which is becoming more intensive.
The two Governments have always paid due attention to collaboration in this
field through the meetings of the Vietnam-Russia Inter-Government Committee on
economics, trade, science and technology with the latest conference held during
November-December 2015 in Hanoi, she added.
Russia has recently seen stable growth in its oil and gas exports to the
Asia-Pacific region, especially last year, according to the Spokeperson.
