HÀ NỘI — National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân received head of the Cuban Supreme People’s Procuracy Yamila Pena Ojeda in Hà Nội on Friday.
Informing her host on the working session with the Supreme People’s Procuracy of Việt Nam the same day, Yamila Pena Ojeda said the two agencies had engaged in extensive co-operation for years, producing practical and effective outcomes.
She said Cuba was implementing its new constitution, with the Supreme People’s Procuracy playing an important role in completing the legal system.
The prosecutor said with delight that 80 per cent of personnel at her agency were women.
Praising Cuba’s achievements in health, education and bio-technology, among others, NA Chairwoman Ngân stressed that despite global changes over the past six decades, Việt Nam and Cuba had stood side by side in their national construction and development.
The two nations had co-operated in all fields, maintained delegation exchanges and regular meetings between their ministries and sectors, and supported each other at multilateral forums and international conferences. Bilateral trade had increased to US$335.8 million in 2018, while joint projects in agriculture, construction and health were running effectively.
Ngân said Việt Nam supported collaboration between the two procuracies. She said as Cuba had a new constitution, it was practical for the agencies to exchange experience and co-operate concerning the role of the supreme procuracy in constitution implementation and protection of the law.
She said she hoped joint programs between the two procuracies would be fruitful, contributing to Việt Nam–Cuba relations. — VNS
