As covered in our previous bulletin, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong held talks with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday. After this meeting, the two sides have adopted a Joint Vision Statement on Vietnam – Japan Relations. Here’s a brief of the statement’s content.

In the Joint Vision Statement on Vietnam – Japan Relations, the two sides confirmed that Viet Nam amd Japan shared many fundamental interests as mutually important partners, and that the development of one country would facilitate that of the other. As prompted by each side’s needs and interests, the countries shared the intention to connect their 2 economies in a sustainable and long-term way, with a focus on connecting economic development strategies, production capacity, and human resources on the principles of mutual assistance and benefit. They expressed their determination to continue working closely together for an early conclusion to negotiations of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Vietnam and Japan also expressed serious concerns over recent and ongoing developments in the East Sea, which have increased tensions and threatened peace and stability in the region and the world. They emphasized that coastal states are required under international law, including the Law of the Sea, to refrain from unilateral actions that would change the status quo.
