HA NOI — National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung has proposed that the Viet Nam Peace Committee (VPC) and the Chinese People's Association for Peace and Disarmament (CPAPD) engage in closer cooperation.
Hung made the proposal at a reception given to CPAPD Vice President Li Wuwei in the capital yesterday.
The legislative chief affirmed that the Party, State and people of Viet Nam would do their best to join China in elevating comprehensive strategic co-operation in the interest of peace and development.
He underlined the Vietnamese NA's desires to beef up cooperation with the Chinese National People's Congress.
The two sides should promote the exchange of information and expertise to ensure that the two Governments effectively deploy cooperative programmes and projects as well as jointly coordinate and support each other at regional and international parliamentary forums, Hung said.
Li Wuwei, also vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, affirmed that his visit aimed to further deepen the two countries' traditional friendship and step up cooperative relations between the two States and the CPAPD and VPC.
He said he hoped the two legislative bodies would increase the exchange of experience in their work.
At another reception given by the President of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front Central Committee Huynh Dam in Ha Noi the same day, Li Wuwei said Viet Nam and China should continue close, mutually-beneficial coordination to contribute to the traditional friendship fostered by President Ho Chi Minh and President Mao Zedong.
Meanwhile, Dam highlighted China's achievements, which he said have helped the country raise its position in the international arena.
He proposed the two countries speed up cooperation in the exchange of information, experience and co-ordination in activities.—VNS
