For his part, Champagne congratulated Vietnam on its successes in coping with the pandemic and thanked the country for its coordination in repatriating Canadians in China in January.

The Canadian minister expressed his hope for further information sharing and collaboration in the epidemic combat through bilateral and multilateral cooperation mechanisms.

The two sides spoke highly of the fruitful bilateral relations across spheres, especially after Vietnam and Canada established a comprehensive partnership in 2017 and began to realize the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

They agreed to step up the exchange of all-level delegations and maintain the existing mechanisms between the two foreign ministries.

The two sides pledged to closely coordinate with each other at regional and international forums during the time when Vietnam works as ASEAN Chair 2020 and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for 2020-2021.
