In an open atmosphere and on the basis of mutual respect and understanding, the two sides discussed orientations and concrete measures to bolster the Vietnam-UK strategic partnership in a more intensive, practical and effective manner, particularly in politics-diplomacy, trade-investment, education-training, science-technology and security-defense, in the context that the two countries are celebrating the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (1973-2018). They also exchanged ideas about regional and international issues of mutual concern. The two sides issued a joint press release on the outcomes of the dialogue. Translated by Chung Anh
