Putin in Vietnam: A Friendship That Endures

Photo : Reuters

Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Hanoi, Vietnam, marking the second leg of his East Asian tour following a recent visit to North Korea. This visit underscores Russia's enduring diplomatic ties in the region, despite international criticism over Putin's involvement in Ukraine's conflict. The United States has voiced disapproval, citing concerns that Putin's visit could bolster his aggressive stance in Ukraine.

Hanoi, Vietnam's capital, holds symbolic significance with a statue of Lenin in Ba Dinh Park, reflecting deep-rooted historical ties between Vietnam and Russia. These relations date back decades, originating from Soviet support during Vietnam's struggle for independence and later during the Vietnam War. Vietnam describes its partnership with Russia as one of loyalty and gratitude, forged through critical military, economic, and diplomatic support.

While Vietnam has evolved economically through global integration, Russia remains pivotal in supplying military equipment and collaborating on oil exploration in the South China Sea. Despite Vietnam's nuanced stance on the Ukraine conflict, abstaining from UN resolutions condemning Russia while maintaining relations with Ukraine, it adheres to a foreign policy of neutrality and non-alignment, dubbed 'bamboo diplomacy'.

Moreover, Vietnam has strengthened ties with the United States, its former adversary, for economic gains and to balance relations with China. Public sentiment in Vietnam towards Putin and the Ukraine conflict varies, influenced by admiration for Putin's defiance of Western powers and skepticism towards Western claims of upholding international law.

Across Asia, similar divisions exist regarding the Ukraine conflict, reflecting regional complexities and historical ties. Thailand, another US ally during the Cold War, maintains close relations with Russia, benefiting from Russian tourism. Vietnam's future relations with Russia hinge on reducing dependency on Russian military supplies amid internal political transitions.

Despite internal challenges, Vietnam remains committed to its foreign policy principles of neutrality, emphasizing economic partnerships while navigating great power rivalries. As Vietnam navigates its path forward, its longstanding diplomatic ties with Russia and evolving global engagements will continue shaping its strategic decisions.
