President hails Hungarian
Before arriving in Denmark, Sang concluded his visit to Hungary with a meeting with the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP)'s President Mestehazy Atila on Tuesday.
Sang spoke highly of the growing relationship between MSZP and the Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) and asked the MSZP to continue to assist the Vietnamese community in the country.
Remembering the support of Hungarian officials and experts, including many MSZP members, who took part in the International Commission of Control and Supervision under the Paris Peace Agreement, Sang declared that Vietnamese people would always remember the precious help offered by their Hungarian friends.
Atila said his party wished to contribute further to fostering Viet Nam-Hungary ties in order to achieve the common aspirations of both peoples.
He applauded the agreements reached between leaders of the two countries during President Sang's visit, hailed the rising role of Viet Nam in Southeast Asia and pledged to do all he could for the Vietnamese Embassy and community in Hungary. — VNS
