Surachai, who was heading a Thai delegation, said he believed that both legislations could further their cooperation potential.
In a meeting with NA Deputy Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, both sides re-affirmed their commitments to building up the ASEAN Community by 2015.
They also agreed to increase exchanges of high-level officials and members of the legislative bodies because they would oversee the implementation of agreements between the two governments. — VNS
