HÀ NỘI – President Trần Đại Quang yesterday received Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Korea (RoK) Yang Sung-tae, who is on his first visit to Việt Nam.
Welcoming the Korean guest, the President lauded the outcomes of his guest’s talks with Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of Viet Nam (SPCV) Nguyễn Hòa Bình.
He stated the Vietnamese State supports court co-operation with the RoK, stressing the importance of the ties amid radical reforms in Việt Nam.
Quang encouraged the SPCV to boost ties with RoK partners, including the Supreme Court and Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), to learn from their experience.
He thanked the RoK Supreme Court for helping Việt Nam train judges and court personnel, sharing judicial experience, and implementing the Việt Nam Court Academy project.
The President said he expects a project between the SPCV and KOICA on boosting judgement transparency and quality in Việt Nam to soon begin, as it is significant to Việt Nam’s judicial reform and bilateral court co-operation.
For his part, Yang Sung-tae said based on the Việt Nam – RoK strategic partnership, his agency and the SPCV have been working closely together, particularly in exchanging high-ranking delegations and judicial experience.
Reporting to his host on the Việt Nam Court Academy project, which began in 2009, the RoK Chief Justice said its two phases have been completed.
He asked President Quang to support future projects between the two countries’ court sectors.
On the occasion, President Quang said the Vietnamese State welcomes RoK President Moon Jae-in to attend the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in Việt Nam in November and visit to the country. — VNS
