HANOI, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) — Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and his Vietnamese counterpart, Nguyen Tan Dung, agreed on Sunday to further deepen the partnership between their two countries simultaneously along three tracks of maritime, onshore and financial cooperation.

During their talks, the two sides committed themselves to setting up in parallel three joint work groups respectively in charge of the three areas and setting them in motion within the year so as to push forward bilateral cooperation for the benefit of both sides.

The three-track approach is an important breakthrough for the future development of bilateral ties, Li said, stressing that the establishment of a maritime cooperation work group is a positive signal of the two countries’ readiness to solve their disputes through cooperation.

Expounding on China’s basic considerations about the three areas of cooperation, Li said the creation of the maritime work group is aimed at advancing China-Vietnam joint development at sea.

He urged the two sides to pursue substantive progress in their joint development in waters out of the mouth of the Beibu Bay, a semi-enclosed sea whose delimitation remains under negotiation between China and Vietnam, and accumulate experience for broader maritime cooperation.

The two neighbors, the premier reiterated, should stick to the path of friendly consultation and negotiation in the process of resolving their disputes.
