The leaders of Vietnam and Russia, President To Lam and President Vladimir Putin, have said they want to boost ties as the pair met in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.

To Lam was full of praise for his Russian counterpart, congratulating him on his recent re-election.

Mr Putin, in return, said strengthening a strategic partnership with the south-east Asian country was one of Russia’s priorities.

His trip to Vietnam, which comes on the heels of his lavish visit to North Korea, is being interpreted as a demonstration of the diplomatic support Russia still enjoys in the region.
