Vietnam, Australia to boost military ties
Quote:

Vietnamese Defense Minister Phung Quang Thanh addresses the opening ceremony of the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) defense ministers' meeting in Hanoi.

Vietnam and Australia on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding that foresees stepped-up joint military training and exercises, Australia said.

Canberra's Minister for Defense, Stephen Smith, and his Vietnamese counterpart Phung Quang Thanh signed the document ahead of an inaugural Asia-wide defense forum being held in the Vietnamese capital on Tuesday.

"It will provide the framework for enhanced practical cooperation between Australia and Vietnam in areas including strategic level policy dialogue, military training and exercises, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief," a statement from the Australian embassy in Hanoi said.

Vietnam and Australia last year established a "Comprehensive Partnership Agreement" covering trade, development assistance, security and defense.

Australia's Smith is among eight regional defense ministers, including from the United States, who will meet Tuesday with their counterparts from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which is currently chaired by Vietnam.

Australia fought alongside the United States during the Vietnam War, which ended in 1975, but Canberra and Hanoi now have broad-based ties.

"The MOU reflects the growing bilateral defense relationship between Australia and Vietnam," said the statement.

Aquino starts first visit to Vietnam for ASEAN Summit
October 22, 2010, 6:26pm

MANILA, Philippines (Xinhua) - Philippine President Benigno Aquino III is to start his first state visit to Vietnam on Oct. 26-27, at the invitation of Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet, Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs announced on Friday.

The visit provides an opportunity for Aquino to discuss with Vietnam's top leaders, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and Communist Party of Vietnam General Secretary Nong Duc Manh, various bilateral issues and concern that are important to both countries.

Four memorandum of agreements (MOA) will be signed during the visit, namely on Academic Cooperation, Defense Cooperation, Oil Spill Preparedness and Response, and Search and Rescue at Sea, the DFA said.

Aquino will lead the Philippine delegation to the ASEAN Summit on Oct. 28-30.

The country's participation in the ASEAN Summit aims to seek support and work together with ASEAN countries and its dialogue partners in addressing challenges to address poverty, promote trade and investment, and create employment opportunities for the region's peoples.

During the meeting, President Aquino is expected to push for the country's interests in five key areas: economic cooperation, political and security cooperation, food and energy security, human rights and disaster management.

Aquino is also expected to address Vietnamese and ASEAN business leaders at a business and investment conference in Hanoi on Oct. 27.

The business and investment conference seeks to provide Philippine private and public project proponents in selected industries (tourism, information technology/business process outsourcing, electronics, mining, agriculture, real estate, construction and infrastructure). It is also an opportunity for business leaders from ASEAN and ASEAN dialogue countries to meet and discuss possible project financing and joint venture collaboration in a business matching setting.

By Leila B. Salaverria
Philippine Daily Inquirer First Posted 07:27:00 10/23/2010 Filed Under: Agreement (general), Foreign affairs & international relations



PRESIDENT AQUINO plans to sign four agreements with Vietnam aimed at improving bilateral cooperation when he makes a state visit to the country next week.

Mr. Aquino is scheduled to meet with Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and Communist Party of Vietnam General Secretary Nong duc Manh, Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Erlinda Basilio told reporters yesterday.

He would sign memorandum of agreements on defense cooperation, academic cooperation, oil spill preparedness and response and search and rescue at sea in Hanoi, she added.

Mr. Aquino is to depart for Vietnam on Tuesday.

The agreement on defense cooperation seeks to link the Philippines’ and Vietnam’s defense agencies and military and covers defense and military cooperation, equipment and technology cooperation and cooperation between the countries’ defense industries.

The MOA on academic cooperation seeks to foster cooperation in higher education and professional training and provide a framework where proposals on education cooperation can be tackled.

In another agreement, Philippines and Vietnam will seal their intention to join hands in preparing for and responding to oil spills. The agreement seeks to expand human resources development, mutual assistance, information exchange and research and development in the area.

The MOA on search and rescue at sea seeks to improve the efficiency in both countries of search and rescue operations for ships, aircraft and people in distress.

Representatives of the Department of National Defense, Commission on Higher Education and the Philippine Coast Guard will join Mr. Aquino in his state visit and are expected to help seal the deals. Also joining the trip are officials from the Departments of Finance, Foreign Affairs and Trade and Industry, the Presidential Management Staff and the Office of the President.

Basilio said the Philippine delegation would remain lean.

Mr. Aquino is also slated to address business leaders in Vietnam and other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations at a business and investment conference in Hanoi.

He will also meet with members of the Filipino community who number some 3,500.

RP, Vietnam Agree on Spratlys
By JC BELLO RUIZ
October 27, 2010, 5:57pm

HANOI, Vietnam – The Republic of the Philippines and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam may be separately laying claim to the Spratly Islands but both governments agree in pushing for the strict implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the “East Sea” or the South China Sea towards a future Code of Conduct in the marginal sea east of China.

This was the main issue agreed upon by President Benigno S. Aquino III and Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet during their bilateral meeting Tuesday afternoon at the Presidential Palace here. The two countries, along with Malaysia, Brunei, and China are claiming the group of islands of more than 750 reefs, islets, atolls, cays, and islands in the South China Sea that is believed to contain significant oil and gas deposits.

The two leaders also have a similar stand concerning their neighboring junta-ruled Myanmar.

“They talked about the shared position on the South China Sea that all claimants should abide by the Code of Conduct. They both agreed that Myanmar should do more to move toward democracy," Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) Secretary Ramon “Ricky” Carandang.

Aquino earlier said he would make strong statements about Myanmar during his attendance in the 17th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit here starting Thursday.

During the meeting, Triet and some of his ministers requested for the release of the 32 Vietnamese fishermen arrested in the Philippines for fishing in our territory.

The President promised a quick review of their case in accordance with Philippine laws. “He said that 11 of the fishermen had already been freed,” Carandang said.

The two leaders also agreed to strengthen and expand mutually beneficial cooperation in defense, agriculture, education and training, and shipping. Aquino also met with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung after meeting the Vietnamese President Tuesday.

At the state banquet hosted by Triet later Tuesday, Aquino spoke highly of the Philippine-Vietnam relations, even calling his counterpart, “my very good friend, President Nguyen Minh Triet.”

“Mr. President, allow me to thank you for your gracious invitation to me, to undertake this State Visit, the first of my presidency. The warm welcome accorded to me and to the entire Philippine delegation by the Vietnamese people and government is a clear sign of the close relations between our two nations,” Aquino said.

He vowed continued support of his administration to the government of Vietnam and its people.

“It is a pleasure to be here, tonight, to express our best wishes to the government of Vietnam and the Vietnamese people as you undertake the chairmanship of the ASEAN. In regional unity, we have the means to sustain economic growth, advance our shared development agenda, and promote regional peace and stability.

Tonight is also a testament to our mutual commitment to find additional means and areas of cooperation that will benefit the Filipino and Vietnamese people,” he added.

The Vietnamese President, meanwhile, reiterated his confidence that the Philippines will make even bigger progress under President Aquino’s leadership.

“The vibrant friendship between our two nations has already found expression in diverse areas, particularly in trade, fisheries, meteorology and hydrography, sports, and finance. With the signing of four more agreements, our respective governments are tangibly strengthening cooperation in higher education, defense, and maritime affairs," Aquino said.

“Next year, we will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Vietnam. It will be an excellent occasion for cultural exchanges and people-to-people activities to commemorate our friendship.

As the Philippines takes the first steps toward a more transparent, responsive, and economically competitive government, be assured, Excellency, that Vietnam remains an important partner of the Philippines. Indeed, our relationship will continue to prosper under my administration,” he added.

Aquino offers search, rescue help to Indonesia

By Leila B. Salaverria
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 03:16:00 10/28/2010

Filed Under: Benigno Aquino III, Foreign affairs & international relations, Disasters (general), Diplomacy, ASEAN

HANOI—President Aquino on Wednesday offered help to Indonesia as he commiserated with the Philippines’ neighbor over the deaths and destruction wrought by an earthquake and a tsunami.

“We are prepared to assist in any way we can. We are also confident that Indonesia will meet this challenge with the resolve, compassion, and unity that has marked their response to the national calamities in the past,” he said in a statement.

Mr. Aquino said the Philippines was prepared to offer assistance in search-and-rescue operations and in disaster management.

He told reporters here that he had sent a letter to Indonesia and instructed the Office of Civil Defense to inform the Indonesian ambassador of the country’s offer of help.

The Filipinos, he said, sympathized with their neighbors’ ordeal and that the Philippines would help in any way it can. He expressed faith that Indonesia would be able to hurdle this latest disaster.

He commiserated with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who was also billeted at the Hanoi hotel where he is staying. The two heads of state are attending the 17th summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which is scheduled to open Thursday.

“Our thoughts are with … [Yudhoyono] as he returns to be with and lead his people in the works of rescue, recovery and rebuilding,” he said.

The two countries had scheduled bilateral talks, but they were not expected to push through with the meeting because of the Indonesian tragedy.

Philippines, Vietnam sign defense agreement
By Dona Pazzibugan
Philippine Daily Inquirer First Posted 07:08:00 11/10/2010 Filed Under: Defense, agreements, Foreign affairs & international relations, Military



MANILA, Philippines—The Philippines has entered into a defense cooperation agreement with Vietnam that calls for exchange visits and educational exchanges between the military of the two nations.

Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin signed the memorandum of agreement (MOA) on defense cooperation with Vietnamese Defense Minister Gen. Phung Quang Thanh during the recent state visit to Vietnam of President Benigno Aquino III.

The MOA seeks to strengthen dialogue and cooperation between the Philippine Department of National Defense (DND) and the Ministry of National Defense of Vietnam.

“One of the features of the MOA is the conduct of visits and educational exchanges between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Vietnamese Peoples’ Army,” the DND said in a statement.

Gazmin, a retired Army general, paid an official visit to Vietnam last Oct. 25 when he had a bilateral meeting with General Thanh.

Gazmin was part of Mr Aquino’s delegation during the two-day state visit to Vietnam on Oct. 26.

Budget cuts force Sweden to shut Vietnam embassy
Quote:

Sweden has announced that is would close its embassy in Vietnam next year because of a budget cut imposed on the current government by the Riksdag, the Swedish parliament.

Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Carl Bildt said the move would not have any impact on existing and planned bilateral cooperation programs in Vietnam.

"It is [the] most unfortunate consequence of a decision taken by our Parliament to cut back funding for our Foreign Service. I very much regret the move, and will do whatever I can to continue our cooperation and dialogue with Vietnam in different areas," he told Thanh Nien Weekly via email on Wednesday (December 22).

"I don't think there will be any effect on our existing or planned cooperation programs,” he said.

On Wednesday, Sweden said it would shut its embassies in Argentina, Belgium, Vietnam, Malaysia and Angola because of budgetary cuts imposed on the minority government by the opposition in parliament. The five embassies will be closed in 2011.

"This painful decision is a consequence of the recent decision of the Riksdag to cut funding to the Government Offices by 300 million Swedish kronor (US$43.7 million)," Bildt said in a statement.

Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's center-right government was re-elected to office with two seats short of a majority in September.

Jairo Acuña-Alfaro, United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Vietnam policy advisor on public administration reform and anti-corruption, said that the news “has clearly come as a surprise since Sweden has had a very detailed phase-out strategy.”

Sweden has been cooperating with Vietnam mainly in anti-corruption and press training. In 2007, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung ordered the Government Inspectorate to host the Anti-Corruption Dialogue, a biannual forum where the Vietnamese government and its development partners discuss ideas about anticorruption efforts in the country. Sweden was invited to mobilize resources and organize the dialogue.

“Clearly, if Sweden closes its embassy in Hanoi, it will leave an important gap in terms of the anticorruption work,” Acuña-Alfaro of UNDP Vietnam said.

But he added the Vietnamese government has extensively repeated that corruption is a key priority, in that regards a possible closure of the Swedish embassy should not be considered as an obstacle to continue this political dialogue on anticorruption.

“On the contrary, it should be seen as an opportunity for the government to show its political will and determination and give continuity. As we have mentioned in the past, the government must own the fight against corruption.”

Vietnam reviews international human rights treaties
Quote:
Vietnam has successfully defended its national report on the implementation of human rights under the Universal Periodic Review of the UN Human Rights Councils, which has earned international plaudits.

A seminar on International conventions on human rights and implementation mechanisms was held in Hanoi on December 22 by the Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).

Representatives and speakers from 40 media agencies, and organisations in charge of human rights in Vietnam attended the seminar.

The seminar was part of a technical cooperation programme concerning human rights between Vietnam and Austria which started in 2006.

In his opening speech, Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son affirmed the Vietnamese Party, State and Government’s consistent policy, in which Vietnam attaches great importance to joining international human rights treaties to show its commitments and determination in ensuring and exercising human rights.

So far, Vietnam involved itself in the five key UN conventions on human rights, the International Labour Organization’s conventions and other bilateral agreements to promote and protect human rights.

Vietnam has signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and is carrying out necessary formalities for the approval of this convention in the near future.

Apart from enhancing cooperation in international treaties, Vietnam is taking into account its participation in other treaties. “The 2009-2010 period has seen Vietnam’s great efforts in international cooperation on human rights, particularly regional and international mechanisms,” Mr. Son said.

As Chair of the ASEAN Inter-Governmental Commission on Human Rights in 2010, Vietnam worked hand in hand with other ASEAN countries to put the commission into operation and fulfilled all tasks set for 2010 by mapping out a five-year plan and devising specific tasks for 2010-2011, which were approved by ASEAN foreign ministers.

Over the past four years, AusAID in Vietnam has organised seminars and training courses to raise Vietnamese agencies and organisations’ awareness of human rights issues and create a link between Vietnamese and Australian agencies in exercising human rights.

Australia has assisted Vietnam in issuing and revising some laws relating to the protection of human rights.

Australian Vice Ambassador to Vietnam Vanessa Wood praised the media’s role in imparting the contents of international treaties to all people while expressing the hope that through cooperation programmes, Vietnam and Australia could share human rights-related experiences.

During the two-day seminar, the participants focused their discussions on democracy, human rights in international relations, the Vietnamese State’s views and policies on human rights and religion, and issues on democracy and human rights in Vietnam’s relations with other countries, including the US, the EU and the Vatican.

Vietnam, UK agree joint action plan for 2011
Quote:


Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Quoc Cuong and British Ambassador to Vietnam, Dr. Antony Stokes have signed the Vietnam-UK 2011 Action Plan which sets out a wide range of new initiatives on all seven pillars of the partnership.

The signing ceremony took place in Hanoi on January 26.

The seven areas of cooperation for 2011 include political - diplomatic cooperation; global and regional issues; trade and investment; sustainable socio-economic development cooperation; education, training, science and technology; security and defence; and people-to-people links.

Ambassador Antony Stokes expressed his pleasure at the signing of the Action Plan soon after the Strategic Partnership Declaration was signed during Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Gia Khiem’s visit to the UK last September.

“The Action Plan turns the high level agreement of the Strategic Partnership into concrete detail”, the ambassador said, saying he believes the signing of the document will heighten Vietnam-UK bilateral ties.

As agreed, the two governments will continue to deliver concrete outcomes in traditional areas of work such as education and trade and investment. Some outstanding projects include direct flights from Vietnam to London in the second half of this year and the initial operations of the UK - Vietnam International University in Da Nang this year.

The launch of direct flights from HCM City and Hanoi to London would be a positive stimulation not only for tourism but also for trade and people-to-people links, Antony Stokes said.

The ambassador also informed reporters of the Vietnam visit by London’s Lord Mayor in March, which he believes will bring huge opportunities for the Southeast Asia country in infrastructure improvement to encourage economic growth and investment, as the Lord Mayor is an expert in public-private partnerships.

On the sidelines of the signing ceremony, Ambassador Anthony Stokes said the visit will also open up great opportunities for British financial service companies to seek investment in Vietnam, as London is known as a major world financial service centre.

Antony Stokes and Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Le Danh Vinh signed the agreed Minutes of the UK-Vietnam Joint Economic Trade Committee meeting which took place in London in late November, 2010.

This event has paved the way for further commitments by both sides to improve the business environment.

The stamp of Vietnam’s foreign policy 2012
Quote:
VietNamNet Bridge - One of the highlights of the Vietnamese foreign policy in 2012 is promoting and deepening the relationships with key strategic partners, upgrading diplomatic relations with important partners, promoting substantive economic relations with other countries and regions.

After many official visits since taking office, President Truong Tan Sang chose Russia as the first destination in Europe (July 2012). The visit became the focus of the national and international media because it contained new elements, bringing the diplomatic relations between the two countries to the new page.

President V. Putin received his Vietnamese counterpart at his compound in the coastal city of Sochi. This was unprecedented in top-ranking visits between the two countries. The two leaders agreed to raise the cooperation between Vietnam and Russia to the "comprehensive strategic partnership" level.

The New Vietnamese Vocabulary for Foreign and Defense Relations
Quote:
Vietnam has not only enhanced the professionalism of its defense and foreign ministries, it even has a new strategic vocabulary. So, what’s the next step? As Lewis Stern sees it, it’s time for Hanoi to have a ‘strategic’ rather than ‘comprehensive’ partnership with Washington.
