HA NOI (VNS) — The Viet Nam-South Korea relations have further cemented over the recent past by exchange visits of high-ranking officials, representatives of ministries, businesses, and people of the two countries.

This was stated by President Truong Tan Sang in Ha Noi yesterday while receiving Mayor of Republic of Korea (RoK)'s Busan city Hur Nam Sik, who is leading a delegation of businessmen and intellectuals on a working visit to Viet Nam.

The leader requested the RoK government and Busan authorities to offer further assistance to the Vietnamese community in the country in order to integrate them into the local community. He affirmed that the Vietnamese state was ready to assist the RoK businesses to operate in Viet Nam just as in their own home country.

For his part, Mayor Hur avowed that Busan authorities hoped to develop further relations in various fields with many cities in Viet Nam, besides HCM City, with which they have enjoyed close relations over the past two decades. — VNS
