HA NOI (VNS) — National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung told Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj yesterday that Vietnamese legislators are willing to assist the two Governments in implementing their new agreements.
During a meeting in Ha Noi, he said the NA always supported co-operation and shared interests between the two countries.
Welcoming the Mongolian President on his first visit to Viet Nam, the NA Chairman said the visit would create new prospects for bilateral relations.
He praised the outcomes of talks between President Elbegdorj and his Vietnamese counterpart Truong Tan Sang, urging the two countries to fully tap the potential of their relationship, especially in economics, peacekeeping, stability, co-operation and development in the region and throughout the world.
The host lauded Mongolian achievements in their national development and expressed his belief that the Sate and people of Mongolia would reap the fruits of socio-economic development, thus raising people's living standards.
The Vietnamese NA wished to boost co-operation with the Mongolian Parliament, he said, urging the two sides to increase delegation and experience exchanges in law making.
The top legislator suggested the Viet Nam-Mongolia Joint Committee should work closely with each other to celebrate the 60th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties in 2014 (November 17, 1954).
Sharing Hung's views, Elbegdorj expressed hope for enhanced legislative ties in various areas and exchange between parliamentarians to foster friendship and co-operation between the two countries.
The guest applauded the great achievements made by the Vietnamese people in national construction and development.
Viet Nam and Mongolia boasted a time-honoured relationship, he noted, highlighting the two countries' close co-ordination and mutual support at regional and international forums.
The President expressed his hope Viet Nam would back Mongolia to enhance its links with other ASEAN countries.
During their meeting, Hung asked Elbegdorj to convey his invitation to Mongolian Speaker of Parliament Enkhbold Zandaakhuu to attend the 132nd General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, due to be held in Viet Nam in April 2015. — VNS
