HA NOI (VNS) — National Assembly Vice Chairman Huynh Ngoc Son yesterday welcomed a delegation from the Belarus-Viet Nam Friendship Parliamentarians' Group led by Chairman Vitaly Busko.
Son confirmed that Viet Nam treasured its traditional friendship and multi-faceted co-operation with Belarus. He suggested the two parliaments continue organising regular exchanges of high-level delegations while implementing bilateral agreements.
Busko informed guests of the situation in the East Sea following China's illegal placement of a giant oil rig deep inside Viet Nam's waters.
He expressed his hope that the Commonwealth of Independent States (SNG), including Belarus, would pay more attention to maritime security and safety in the region in general and to the East Sea situation in particular, as well as Viet Nam's stance of solving disputes through peaceful means on the basis of international law, the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea.
Busko, who is Chairman of the House of Representatives' Commission for International Affairs, said Belarus valued ties with Viet Nam. — VNS
