HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam and Cambodia should enhance multi-faceted co-operation, particularly in trans-national crime prevention and judicial support, said President Truong Tan Sang.
Sang made the statement while receiving visiting National Co-Prosecutor Chea Leang of the Office of Co-Prosecutors under the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) yesterday.
Viet Nam had been actively carrying out judicial reform in combination with raising the quality of personnel training for the procuracy sector, he said, adding that with their experience, Viet Nam and Cambodia could hold regular exchanges and strengthen co-operation and mutual support.
Chea Leang, who is also Prosecutor General of the Cambodian Supreme Court, stated that based on their traditional relationship, the two procuracy sectors had maintained and fostered co-operation in many fields, looking towards a strong and transparent judiciary to serve the two countries' socio-economic development.
She said she hoped the two countries' commitments on judicial support would be realised and the two sides would increase delegation exchanges and experience sharing to improve staff capacity. — VNS
