Minh and Indian FM S. Jaishankar shared the view that Vietnam-India relations are developing well and agreed upon measures to promote the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership. They agreed to increase high-level meetings and contacts, intensify cooperation in trade, investment, agriculture, health care, aviation, and defence-security, and enhance coordination at multilateral forums, particularly during 2020 when Vietnam chairs the ASEAN, and the time Vietnam and India both serve as non-permanent members of the UN Security Council.
