According to expert Grigory Trofimchuk, recently, Russia-Vietnam relations have developed comprehensively, from economic, political to cultural fields, and in fact all aspects of cooperation have recorded strong growth. However, the highlight is that the two countries strengthen cooperation in the context of the world's complicated changes.

First of all, the highlight of the Russia-Vietnam comprehensive strategic partnership is cooperation in the military-technical field. For Moscow, stability in Southeast Asia and Asia in general is of utmost importance. Vietnam holds one of the key positions and regularly shows efforts on all fronts. The Vietnam factor has become particularly important in recent geopolitical developments.

The Russian expert emphasized Vietnam's participation in the free trade area of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). According to him, this allows the Eurasian platform to quickly expand towards Southeast Asia, where there is an ASEAN organization of which Vietnam is one of the members holding a leading position.

According to Mr. Trofimchuk, Russia and Vietnam have growth potential, so the two countries can expect future development in terms of bilateral economic and trade cooperation. In addition, the Russian expert recommended that the two sides expand projects that can become "important connecting factors" between the two peoples. He added that the fields of cooperation between the two countries share a very solid foundation, which is the friendship between the Russian people and Vietnam. This is a lasting, eternal value and is the main focus of the Russia-Vietnam relationship.

Commenting on the visit to Russia by Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, expert Grigory Trofimchuk said that Russians, especially Russian experts studying Vietnam, have special feelings for the Vietnamese President. “President Nguyen Xuan Phuc is a real comrade. His visit to Russia is not only an important event, but also lays a new foundation for the further development of bilateral cooperation in energy, high technology, tourism, medicine, education, mechanical engineering and also in the political and military fields," he emphasized.

The Russian expert expressed his hope that the upcoming visit to Russia by President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin will bring about specific and impressive results. The success of the high-level talks will guide the development of cooperation and bring prosperity to the two peoples./.
