Many Russian reporters were present in Ha Noi and praised the atmosphere of preparation for the visit, when the plane carrying Russian President Vladimir Putin had not yet landed in Ha Noi.

Russia's TASS news agency has opened a special column that provides updates on Putin's, with articles highlighting the time-tested relations between the two countries and their cooperation.

One of the articles said Viet Nam and Russia have consolidated their comprehensive strategic partnership in the spirit of friendship and mutual support.

TASS cited the joint state issued on the occasion as saying that the relationship is to consolidate peace, stability and security in the Asia-Pacific and the world at large, and the two countries are striving to deepen their economic and trade ties while enhancing collaboration in other spheres like energy, digital technology, science-technology, education, culture and tourism.

The news site Vesti.ru held that the visit will contribute to advancing the bilateral collaboration to a new height based on the previous cooperation foundation.

Japan's Kyodo News said the trip marks the first state visit to Viet Nam by the Russian leader since he came in November 2013, and aims to consolidate the traditional friendship between the two countries.

According to its article, Russia attaches importance to promoting dialogues with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to which Viet Nam is an active, constructive member.

In the same vein, Nikkei Asia gave coverage of the visit, saying the two sides signed 11 cooperation documents in many fields.

The website euronews.com said Putin's Viet Nam visit is to bolster relations with Southeast Asian nations, and the two countries have had diplomatic relations since 1950 – with this year marking 30 years of their Treaty on Principles of Friendly Relations (June 16, 1994 - 2024).

The UK's Financial Times on June 20 mentioned Viet Nam's achievements in its bamboo diplomacy.

Also, it cited Le Hong Hiep, a researcher at Singapore's Iseas-Yusof Ishak Institute, as saying that hosting President Putin shows the balance and diversity of its foreign policy, which plays an important role in helping the Southeast Asian nation attract investment from different partners./.
