Sympathy sent to Croatia

HA NOI (VNS)— National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung yesterday sent a message of condolences to the Croatian Parliament over the death of its leader, Boris Sprem.

Boris Sprem, 56, died of blood cancer last week. He was a member of the ruling Social Democratic Party and was elected Speaker of Croatian Parliament last December.

Also yesterday, Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh extended his condolences to Leung Chun-ying, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, over a deadly maritime accident that killed 38 people.

The accident occurred on the evening of October 1, when two passenger ferries collided off Lamma Island to the southwest of Hong Kong. — VNS
