    Russian-Vietnamese relations on the rise — Putin

    SOCHI, November 25 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday the development of relations with Vietnam was successful and trade turnover between the two countries was growing.

    “Relations between Russia and Vietnam develop successfully. We maintain relations at the high political level,” Putin said at a meeting with General Secretary of the Vietnamese Communist Party Nguyen Phu Trong.

    “Last year trade turnover increased by almost 9% Russia’s investments amounted to $9 billion. They continue to grow,” he said.

    The visit will give an additional impetus to the development of relations between the two countries, Putin said.

    Vietnam also considers development of relations with Russia successful. Before his arrival in Russia Nguyen Phu Trong told TASS that there were promising spheres of cooperation - trade, energy, security, education and science.

    Trade turnover increased to almost $4 billion in 2013 as compared with 1990’s when it was at the level of $300-400 million a year.

    In the fuel and energy sector Vietsovpetro was the first joint oil enterprise. At present, three new joint ventures were created. They operate successfully both in Vietnam and in Russia - Rusvietpetro, Vietgazprom and Gazpromviet.

    Earlier, the Kremlin press service said the key joint projects in the oil and gas sector, nuclear power engineering, industry, including on the draft agreement on a free trade zone between the Customs Union and Vietnam, were in the focus of the talks.

    “Vietnam always considers Russia one of its leading partners,” Nguyen Phu Trong said at the meeting with Putin.

    One of the purposes of the visit was to prepare measures that would make it possible to reach a qualitatively new level in relations between the two countries, he said.

    Hanoi is different from Kyiv or Tbilisi. The goverment is very stable, the fifth columnists are damn weak and unorganized, and the public DO NOT WANT ANY WAR.

    China is huge and is a very strong global power, while Vietnam is a small country. It is clearly that Vietnam has no intention to "bully" China.

    2 how's the relationship between Vietnam and Thailand?

    3 how does  Vietnam public see Vietnam communism party?

    1) The main theme is anti-imperialism. For example, China's invasion against Vietnam or other countries are heavily criticized. But China's patriotic movements against Mongols, Manchu, Japan facists... are strongly praised.

    Something you can frequently see in a Marxist history book.

    2)Aside from the long-time rivalry between Vietnam's national soccer team and Thailand's national soccer team, there is no problem, no issue, no hostility.

    3)The people don't care about politics.
    Sorry too late to see this post .in Chinese history book ,there is no imperialism stuff between china and Vietnam . Nowadays Chinese know nothing about Vietnam culture ,only know the dispute islands it is not good . And we Chinese history book don't consider Mongols and " Manchu" are foreginers I live in so called Manchu and now it is liaoning provience. And my family are 满族 we consider we are Chinese just like Han chinese . China has 56 nationalities.not only Han chinese
    Nowadays there are a lot of discussions and debates on internet about which political system suit chinese . And what we can learn from advanced countries like USA Chinese public have very high expectation on china.
    About the dispute islands I think their strategy is to use coast guard not navy in first place . And push Vietnam very hard until they can not bear . When they start to flight back then navy will take a big military coorperatipn and get back all the islands . If Vietnam don't fight back . China will start land reclamation(it has already start) and drill the oil . Majority Chinese think vietnam are stealing our oil and bullying china . I don't know how can solve this problem . even Taiwan have same opinon with mainland china . On this issue they want to work together. It is called "ancestor property”
    how does Vietnam people see south Vietnam (before united)
    Vietnam language and thialand language and sounds same to me how to distinguish?

    Russia, Vietnam Should Increase Energy Cooperation – Russian Prime Minister

    Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia and Vietnam should search for new ways of cooperating in the energy sector.

    Vietnam Will Not Stop Russia From Using Cam Rahn Bay Base - Think Tank Head
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia and Vietnam should search for new ways of cooperating in the energy sector, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

    "Considering that we have been working together for a long time, it is essential to look for new, promising forms of cooperation," Medvedev said in an interview with Vietnamese media ahead of his two-day visit to the country, starting on April 6.

    Among potential areas of cooperation, the prime minister mentioned refining, rather than solely extraction, and incentives to boost joint work both on Vietnam's continental shelf and in Russia.

    "We should use various incentivizing mechanisms, including taxes," Medvedev said.

    The prime minister noted that the two countries had a good history of collaboration on offshore development, with Russia and Vietnam having produced hundreds of millions of tonnes of oil and billions of cubic meters of gas together.

    Such results, according to Medvedev, highlighted the success of the bilateral cooperation, which made it possible for Russia's Zarubezhneft and Vietnam's PetroVietnam to agree to continue their joint work until 2030.

    However, Medvedev said the already established ties should not prevent further progress, and that was why Russian energy companies, including such giants as Rosneft and Gazprom, had partners of their own in Vietnam.

    In December 2014, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said the Asian country was extremely appreciative of the Russian energy companies' work in Vietnam and promised assistance to those businesses willing to enter the Vietnamese market in the future.

    Vietnam's potential free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) will be the first of its kind, ensuring the Asian country's access to a huge market, Russian Prime Minister said.

    The EEU was established in May 2014 by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, with Armenia joining in October and Kyrgyzstan signing its accession treaty in December of that year.
    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed on Wednesday a decree to grant Ukraine a gas discount of no more than $100 per 1,000 cubic meters of fuel for the second quarter of 2015.

    "[The free trade agreement] will likely be the first such agreement to be signed between the Eurasian Economic Union and an individual country. This would give Vietnam access to a huge market, which includes not only Russia but also its partners," Medvedev said in an interview with Vietnamese media ahead of his visit to the country on April 6-7.

    The prime minister said the potential agreement could open new ways for cooperation, with Russia already being in final talks with Vietnam, having made progress on many issues.

    "The planned agreement would not only open the Vietnamese market to Russian commodities, but would also give our Vietnamese partners access to the Russian market," Medvedev said.

    He added that Russia was ready to create conditions for mutual investment, which would require extra work on the investment aspect of the free trade agreement so that Russian companies could succeed in the Vietnamese market.

    In February, an EEU press service representative said the agreement on the establishment of a free trade zone between Vietnam and the EEU could be signed in the first half of 2015.

    According to EEU Trade Minister Andrey Slepnev, the creation of a free trade zone between the union and Vietnam could boost the trade between the parties, which currently stands at $4 billion to $10 billion within a few years, once the agreement comes into force.

    There are no obstacles for Russia and Vietnam to make settlements in national currencies but there needs to be an economic reason for doing so, Dmitry Medvedev said.

    "Using national currencies is only suitable when the volume of mutual trade is high and you need to accumulate resources in rubles or dongs," Medvedev said in an interview with Vietnamese media ahead of his visit to the country on April 6-7.

    According to Medvedev, so far the volume of mutual settlements between the two countries accounts only for some 1.5 percent of total bilateral trade, while all other settlements are made in US dollars.

    The prime minister said using national currencies would be more profitable and advantageous in trade and investment since the dollar was a foreign currency for both Russia and Vietnam, leaving them open to fluctuations in the exchange rate.

    "I think there is a good opportunity to do this also in relations with Vietnam," Medvedev said.

    In September 2014, Russia and Vietnam discussed the issues pertaining to the growth of bilateral trade and agreed on the necessity of introducing a mechanism for calculating in national currency.

    Total trade between Russia and Vietnam in 2013 amounted to $3.9 billion, up 8.5 percent from the same period in 2012. According to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, the two countries were aiming for their trade to reach $7 billion in 2015 and $10 billion by 2020.

    Russia’s Gazprom Neft to Buy 49 Percent in Vietnamese Refinery

    Russian energy company Gazprom Neft will buy a 49 percent share of Dung Quat, Vietnamese refinery. Gazprom Neft will also finance the upgrading of Dung Quat proportionally to its share.

    The prices of West Texas Intermediate (WTI), the US oil benchmark, and Brent crude, the global oil benchmark, hit record lows not seen since April 2009 on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW(Sputnik) — Russian energy company Gazprom Neft will buy a 49 percent share of Dung Quat refinery as part of a deal signed with Vietnam Oil and Gas Corporation (Petrovietnam), the Russian company said in a statement Monday.

    “Under the main clauses of the deal Gazprom Neft receives the exclusive rights to negotiate with Petrovietnam over purchasing of a share of the refinery,” the statement said.

    The statement added that Gazprom Neft will finance the upgrading of Dung Quat proportionally to its share.

    Earlier in the day the parties signed a document enacting Gazprom Neft to purchase a 49 percent share in Vietnamese Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Company, the refinery's owner.

    The deal is a part of several agreements that Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Vietnamese authorities signed Monday in the Vietnam capital of Hanoi to broaden energy cooperation between the two counties.

    Last year, Gazprom Neft and Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Company signed a deal over the supply of Russian oil to Dung Quat refinery.

    Launched in 2010, Dung Quat produces about 30 percent of the oil products consumed in Vietnam.

    Russia, Vietnam About to Complete Draft Free Trade Agreement – Kremlin Aide

    Russian president’s aide said that draft free trade zone agreement between Russia and Vietnam is about to be completed and will soon be ready for signing.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The draft free trade zone agreement between Russia and Vietnam is about to be completed and will soon be ready for signing, the Russian president’s aide said Wednesday.

    “The draft is about to be approved. We expect to agree on signing it in the near future,” Yuri Ushakov said.

    He added that Vietnam would become the first country to sign a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), comprising Russia, Armenia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.

    Russian Prime Minister Medvedev said in April that Moscow and Hanoi should consider using national currencies instead of US dollars in trade after agreeing in principle to establish a free trade zone.

    Also last month, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said that Hanoi planned to sign the agreement with the EEU by the end of June, adding that Vietnam looked to increase its goods turnover with Russia to $10 billion by 2020.

    In 2014, EEU Trade Minister Andrey Slepnev said that the creation of a free trade zone between the union and Vietnam could boost the trade between the parties from the current level of $4 billion to $10 billion within a few years.

    The EEU, which came into force on January 1, aims to achieve the free flow of goods, services, capital and labor across its member states.

    House passes Obama's 'fast-track' authority to negotiate trade deal

    President Barack Obama has succeeded in obtaining controversial “fast-track” approval for his Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal in the House of Representatives.

    The Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), as the “fast-track” powers are officially called, passed by a vote of 219-211, giving President Obama an unlikely victory. In a preceding vote, the House struck down a proposal to extend the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, providing assistance to workers who would lose jobs as a consequence of trade deals.

    Russia signs framework agreement for Vietnam's Ninh Thuan 1

    The engineering subsidiary of Russia's Rosatom has signed a general framework agreement with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) for construction of unit 1 of the planned Ninh Thuan nuclear power plant. The country's electricity use is set to triple in 15 years.

    The document was signed on 30 July in Hanoi by NIAEP senior vice-president Vladimir Savushkin and EVN vice-president Nguyễn Cường Lâm in the presence of representatives of Rosatom and Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade.

    Rosatom said in a statement today that the signing ceremony, which took place during the first meeting of the joint Russian-Vietnamese working group for the Ninh Thuan 1 project, is a key milestone in the construction of Vietnam's first nuclear power plant.

    "We and our Vietnamese partners are confident that the Russian nuclear power plant project under development will be the most efficient generation facility in the country and will meet all international safety requirements and quality standards," ASE-NIAEP-AEP general director Valery Limarenko said in the company statement.

    Vietnamese officials announced in November they had chosen Rosatom's AES-2006 design for the plant at Ninh Thuan at Phuoc Dinh, increasing the planned capacity of the four unit plant by about 800 MWe. A second plant should follow based on a partnership with Japan.

    Atomproekt based in Saint Petersburg will supply its version of the AES-2006 plant for at least the first two units. This design produces 1200 MWe for transmission over the grid and its replacement of the VVER-1000 units previously planned would add about 800 MWe to Ninh Thuan's future generating capacity across four units.

    The reactors are to be built over 2017-23 as a turnkey project. Russia's Ministry of Finance is prepared to finance at least 85% of this first plant, to supply the nuclear fuel and take back the used fuel for the life of the plant.

    Electricity tripling


    Vietnam's nuclear power program is planned to feature three plants: Ninh Thuan will have a Phase I and a Phase II, while another plant is expected in a central area. These represent up to around 4800 MWe in capacity, which could be expanded further to 7100 MWe by 2030.

    Today the US Energy Information Administration published a forecast for the Vietnamese power sector, saying, "Vietnam is poised to significantly transform its electrical power generation mix over the next two decades as it modernizes the country's agrarian economy to become a more industrialized nation." Figures showed the electricity sector expanding from around 42 GWe of generating capacity now to almost 140 GWe in 2030, at which time nuclear power could represent 8%.

    Putin hopes for strengthening of Russia-Vietnam strategic partnership — Kremlin

    MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday he hopes for the strengthening of strategic partnership between Russia and Vietnam.


    Putin made the statement in a message to Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the declaration of independence of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

    "Putin noted the friendly, constructive nature of Russian-Vietnamese relations, which was in full confirmed by a recent meeting with the Vietnamese president in Moscow during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the [Soviet Union’s] Victory in the Great Patriotic War," the Kremlin said.

    "The president of Russia expressed confidence that implementation of agreements reached at that meeting will serve the further strengthening of comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries, will contribute to ensuring peace and security in the Asia Pacific region," the message said.

    Putin also "highly assessed the successes of Vietnam in the social-economic and scientific-technical development, its firm positions on the global arena".
