Russia to help in Vietnam civil nuclear program

Russia wants to take part in Vietnam’s planned nuclear energy program, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov said following talks with Vietnam’s Foreign Minister Pham Gia Khiem in Hanoi recently.

“We know that such plans were made in Vietnam, very daring and far-reaching plans. We hope that Russia will be among those who will work with Vietnam in this hi-tech area and continue the traditions of our cooperation,” Denisov said.

While trade between Russia and Vietnam has grown in recent years, Russia’s clout in the Southeast Asian country is still a shadow of Soviet-era levels.
