The death of the President of Vietnam Tran Dai Quang is a loss to the Russian-Vietnamese relations, but his demise will not have a negative impact on political stability in the Republic, told RIA Novosti expert at the Center for strategic research Anton Colors.

The President of Vietnam Tran Dai Quang died on Friday at 62 years old. According to local media reports, the President died as a result of illness at the Central hospital of Hanoi.

«It will be a loss, in particular, and for our relations with Vietnam, he was a significant figure in this case. Vietnam generally positively disposed towards Russia, it is one of the friendly countries in Southeast Asia. For Russia it was a comfortable negotiating partner,» — said the expert.

However, the death of Kuang is unlikely to lead to changes in the internal political situation in Vietnam, says Flowers.

«Much of the negative impact on political stability in Vietnam, it will not, because there is a system of collective leadership and there are four key figures who run the country: the General Secretary of the Communist party, President, Prime Minister and Chairman of the National Assembly. They are called «four pillars». Therefore, the President is only one of the components of this configuration, though, and is the second most important man in the country and the formal head of state. The management of the country occurs on a collective basis, many things are consistent in party of the constitutional bodies, the Communist party of Vietnam, therefore, heavily dependent on a particular person there,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

According to him, Tran Dai Quang greater part of his professional activities held in the KGB. «Before he became President in 2016, he held the position of Minister of public security. He represented a power block in the Vietnamese leadership,» said Flowers.

Thus, according to the expert, the rumors about health problems Tran Dai Quang went a long time. «But such rumors occasionally appear in the Vietnamese online community in respect and other senior leaders of the party government. The degree of severity of illness of the President were not known to the General public. I think that soon we will see the process of negotiations within the ruling elite of Vietnam, we have a new candidate. But it is hard to say what will be the configuration», — he concluded.
