HA NOI (VNS)— Politburo member Le Hong Anh yesterday received a high-ranking delegation from the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO).

The delegation, led by Malaysia's Home Minister, Dato Seri Dr. Amid Zahid Hamidi, is on a four-day visit to Viet Nam.

Hamidi told Anh of the outcomes of dialogue between Viet Nam's Communist Party delegations and UMNO, saying his Party would continue to foster relationships.

Hamidi said he was concerned about the situation in the East Sea, adding that China's action clearly violated the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. He also called on China to respect Viet Nam's sovereignty and that of neighbouring countries.

Anh spoke of the possibility of raising the Malaysia- Viet Nam relationship to a strategic partnership.

Anh said the two countries also needed to foster co-operation in economic and national development. — VNS
