Vietnam is verifying information that a Vietnamese sailor kidnapped by Islamist militants off the southern Philippines has been rescued after nine months in captivity. "We have been in touch with Philippine agencies to verify the information and instructed the Vietnamese embassy in Manila to get ready to bring Do Trung Hieu back home," Vietnam's foreign ministry said in a statement Monday, referring to the Vietnamese sailor reportedly rescued. Philippine troops said on Monday that they had rescued the hostage a day earlier on Basilan island in the southern Mindanao region, a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf kidnap-for-ransom group, following intensified operations against the militants. The rescue was made following the beheading of two fellow crewmen in July. "The hostage was able to run from the militants in the course of military operations and our troops rescued him with the help of local connections," military spokeswoman Captain Jo-Ann Petinglay told AFP. "We have been conducting continuous operations against (the militants) involving airstrikes. The group was under pressure." Petinglay denied a ransom had been paid for the Vietnamese hostage's freedom. He and five and other crewmen were abducted in November from a Vietnamese cargo vessel sailing less than 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Basilan. Militants beheaded two of the sailors last month, prompting President Rodrigo Duterte to threaten to eat the militants alive in retaliation. Duterte often uses extreme language, when talking about Islamic militants. Abu Sayyaf, originally a loose network of militants formed in the 1990s with seed money from Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaeda…...

Aquatic products, vegetables, coffee, cell phones, and accessories were among hard currency earners.

He noted that “Both sides have exchanged many high-ranking delegations, most recently the delegation led by the Vietnamese State President to Russia at the end of June and early July. During these visits, many economic agreements and contracts have been signed, laying a foundation for future economic cooperation between Vietnam and Russia.
