German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his spouse will pay a State visit to Vietnam from January 23-24, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.

The visit will be made at the invitation of President Vo Van Thuong and his spouse.

The visit takes place at a time when the Vietnam-Germany strategic partnership has developed positively in many fields in recent times.

This is the second time Steinmeier has visited Vietnam, following the first in October 2016 when he was Foreign Minister of Germany.

Vietnam and Germany established diplomatic relations on September 23, 1975, and bilateral relations have since developed positively and comprehensively.

During a Vietnam visit in October 2011 by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the two countries established the strategic partnership.
