Vietnam willing to develop ties with Latvia
President Triet expressed his wish that Latvia will also facilitate operations of Vietnamese enterprises.

He also thanked the people of the Soviet Union and Latvia for their valuable and effective assistance to Vietnam during its struggle for national independence.
