Vietnam, China review cooperation on less sensitive marine areas

VOV.VN - Vietnam and China reviewed their cooperation outcomes in 2017 at the 10th round of negotiations of the working group on less sensitive sea-related fields held in Beijing, China  December 11-14.

They worked out a working agenda for cooperation projects next year with a focus on studying and comparing Holocene sediments of the Red River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta, exchanging information about and studying the management of the sea and island environment in the Gulf of Tonkin, and releasing fry and protecting aquatic resources in the Gulf of Tonkin.

The possibility of cooperation in a number of new projects within the framework of the working group on less sensitive fields at sea was also debated.

Both sides underscored the need to step up cooperation based on high-level agreements in an equal, mutually beneficiary, pragmatic and effective manner, and in line with each side’s resources, thereby helping further boost the Vietnam-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

They concurred to hold the working group’s 11th round of negotiations in Vietnam next year.
