On March 23, during their working session in London, the two sides spoke highly of the bilateral cooperation in immigration and crime prevention, agreeing that this is one of the important pillars in the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Both sides said they consider promoting legal immigration channels as an effective and long-term way to achieve this goal.

They also reviewed the implementation of the outcomes of the first Migration Dialogue between Vietnam and the UK in August 2022, and discussed the preparation for the second event of this kind slated for this year in London.

Ambassador Long thanked officials of the UK Home Office for their attention to promoting the friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations.

He suggested the UK side continue to create favourable conditions for the Vietnamese community in the UK to live, work and study in the country in a stable manner, thus significantly contributing to the bilateral relations.

For his part, Secretary of State Jenrick called for coordination between the two sides to organise meaningful activities in celebration of the 50th founding anniversary of the Vietnam – UK diplomatic relations.

He affirmed the willingness to support the embassy in implementing specific measures to further step up the bilateral strategic partnership.
