HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam will create the best conditions for the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) to conduct activities in the country so as to settle international disputes peacefully.

The PCA is based in The Hague in the Netherlands. It was established in 1899 to help with the arbitration and resolution of disputes involving states, state entities, intergovernmental organisations, and private parties.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Ho Xuan Son and PCA Secretary-General Hugo Hans Siblesz yesterday signed agreements for co-operation between the Vietnamese Government and the inter-governmental organisation.

This means Viet Nam has recognised the PCA as a legal entity to address international disputes, including those relating to Viet Nam.

Viet Nam will receive legal training assistance and general information on arbitration procedures from the PCA.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh received Siblesz, saying he hoped the signing of the agreements would help speed up bilateral cooperation, especially in enhancing the lawmakers' capacity.

The PCA has 115 members states and is responsible for facilitating arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution in the international community. — VNS
