HÀ NỘI — Vice Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Gen. Đỗ Bá Tỵ received a delegation of the Committee on Armed Services of the US House of Representatives led by Congressman Seth Moulton in Hà Nội on Monday.
Welcoming the guests – one of the first US delegations to visit Việt Nam in 2020, the host said he believes the trip will help enhance the partnership between the two countries.
In the recent past, the two countries have developed their relations in politics, economy, trade, science, technique, culture, education, defence, and security, he said, noting that Việt Nam considers the US one of its leading partners in economy and trade. The US has also taken many actions and supported the approval of funds for the settlement of war consequences in Việt Nam.
As the countries are celebrating the 25th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties (July 12) this year, Tỵ expressed his hope that bilateral relations will grow further.
At the meeting, the official also asked the US to continue paying attention to addressing the aftermath of war in the Southeast Asian nation, including unexploded ordnance clearance, dioxin detoxification at Biên Hoà airport, and support for the disabled and Agent Orange victims, while helping Việt Nam improve its capacity at sea.
The two sides should also strengthen connections between their parliamentary agencies in all fields such as personnel training and experience sharing, Tỵ added.
For his part, Congressman Moulton said his delegation’s visit creates a basis to promote the countries’ relations in different spheres.
He also pledged support for the improvement of the Vietnamese coast guard and naval forces’ capacity. — VNS
