JNS.org – During a meeting at the Knesset in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Hoàng Trung Hải invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make an official visit to the southeast Asian nation, while Netanyahu invited Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyễn Tấn Dũng to visit the Jewish state.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Israeli and Vietnamese foreign ministries signed a memorandum of understanding on diplomatic and political dialogue.

“I welcome this formal expansion of our dialogue,” Netanyahu said. “Our trade is already robust both ways, which I think is the healthiest. I think there are many opportunities between Vietnam and Israel in so many fields, in almost every field. And we look forward to doing this and we believe our countries can seize the future individually, but better together.”

Netanyahu proposed Israeli-Vietnamese collaboration in areas including R&D, water, biotechnology, and agriculture.

    I am happy to see the Israeli Prime minister exploring and building relations with Asia and Russia as they are the true friends of Israel – and in the process to distance Israel from Europe (EU) who obviously have shown no regards for Israel or the Jews and harbour nothing but ill will. Such new relations will be at the Europeans own expense and brought upon them by themselves. Europe needs Israel – Israel does NOT need Europe!
