During a meeting with Speaker of the Myanmar Parliament Mahn Win Khaing Than in Nay Pyi Taw on Thursday, the Party chief hailed the effective and practical co-operation between the Vietnamese and Myanmar parliaments, especially the maintenance of delegation exchanges and exchange activities of friendship parliamentarian groups.
Việt Nam always wants to strengthen co-operative relations with Myanmar and supports the country’s national reconciliation, he said.
