Timerman affirmed Argentina would promote investment cooperation with Viet Nam , particularly in hydro-power and wind power projects.
He said Argentina was poised to share its experiences and provide technical assistance to Viet Nam in the fields of agriculture, anthropology and international integration negotiations.
Touching upon international and regional issues of mutual concern, the two sides agreed to continue working closely at multilateral forums and with organisations such as the United Nations, Non-Aligned Movement and Forum for East Asia-Latin America Cooperation to protect legitimate rights and heighten the position of each.
Both ministers agreed that sovereignty and territorial disputes should be settled by peaceful measures and in accordance with international laws.
Following the talks, the two ministers signed an agreement on South-south Cooperation and an action plan for 2012-13 aimed at implementing a memorandum between the two foreign ministries on the negotiation of economics and commerce.
