Vietnam’s President Truong Tan San to visit India, Sri Lanka

Vietnam President on India visit next week

It’s a relationship that appears to be going from strength to strength.

So less than a month after India’s foreign minister S.M. Krishna was in Hanoi on a bilateral visit, New Delhi is now readying itself for the arrival of Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, who will be here next week.

The visit is being seen as an important one given the close ties between the two countries which were described as “acquiring momentum, greater depth” by India’s foreign ministry spokesperson as recently in September. Indeed, in 2007 the two countries had inked a strategic partnersip agreement.

And with India’s firmly focused on its “Look East” policy, Vietnam was described as an “important pillar, a vital pillar, a key pillar” of this policy by the spokesperson.
