HÀ NỘI — National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân has urged the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) of Myanmar and its Chairman U Than Htay to uphold their roles in strengthening ties between the two legislatures, especially in inspecting the implementation of signed agreements between the two governments.
During a reception in Hà Nội on December 20 for the USDP Chairman, the NA Chairwoman expressed her delight at the traditional friendship between the two countries, especially the upgrading of bilateral ties to a comprehensive cooperative partnership level during Communist Party of Việt Nam General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng’s State visit to Myanmar in August last year.
She also recalled the warm reception given by Myanmar’s top legislator during her visit in September 2016.
Chairman Than Htay said the USDP will actively contribute to ties between Myanmar and Vietnamese lawmakers, as well as the two legislatures.
Previously on December 19, Politburo member and Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ hosted the Myanmar delegation. Both sides expressed their delight at the development of bilateral ties over the past years, especially in economy, investment, trade, energy, agriculture, and finance-banking, as well as joint work in regional, ASEAN and global forums.
During the stay, the Myanmar delegation held meetings with leaders of the Party Central Committee’s Organisation Commission and Inspection Commission, as well as the Việt Nam-Myanmar Friendship Association. They also visited the northern province of Quảng Ninh and several economic and cultural establishments in Việt Nam. — VNS
