Dmitry Medvedev: Mr President, I’d like to welcome you and wish you all the best on behalf of the Russian President. I have fond memories of my recent visit to Vietnam in April this year.
Today, we can discuss current issues of cooperation and, of course, we will continue contacts at all levels of leadership.
Truong Tan Sang: On behalf of the people and the Government of Vietnam, I’d like to congratulate Russia on its recent achievements. We are confident that Russia will be able to overcome all temporary difficulties and reaffirm its status as a great world power. Let me, on behalf of the Vietnamese Government, send our greetings and all the best to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
