He stated that Vietnam holds a significant position as a vital partner to Malaysia, both bilaterally and within the ASEAN community.

The enduring relations between the two countries have witnessed remarkable growth and this year, a remarkable milestone is reached as Malaysia and Vietnam joyously commemorate their 50th Anniversary of diplomatic relations, he said.
