HA NOI (VNS)— Chairman of the Viet Nam National Assembly Nguyen Sinh Hung yesterday left Ha Noi to attend the 130th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Geneva, at the invitation of IPU President Abdel Wahad Radi.
He was scheduled to meet with the President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union and attend the signing ceremony for the organisation of the 132nd IPU in Viet Nam.
Since joining the IPU in April 1979, Viet Nam has an active role in the organisation, which focuses on global peace and security, and sustainable development.
Along with its role in the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA), Viet Nam's National Assembly has become a key player in the multilateral parliamentary channel at both the regional and international level.
Representatives of the Vietnamese legislature were elected as representatives of the Asia-Pacific Political Geography Group at the IUP Executive Committee, demonstrating further that Viet Nam's legislative body has made significant contributions to State diplomacy.
Besides attending the 130th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, NA Chairman Hung is also expected to meet with the General Director of United Nations Office in Geneva and pay an official visit to Switzerland at the invitation Switzerland's House of Representatives. — VNS
