HA NOI — During a visit to Mexico last week, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, Vietnamese National Assembly Vice Chairwoman, met with Senator Alberto Anaya Gutierrez, General Secretary of the Mexican Labour Party, to review the friendship between the two countries.

Gutierrez suggested Viet Nam and Mexico consider negotiating the signing of a Free Trade Agreement which he believed would help tighten the ties between the two countries.

While reviewing achievements of agricultural co-operation projects between the two countries, he also said that some Mexican States, including Sinaloa, Guerrero and Baja California Sur, wished to learn from Viet Nam's experiences in seafood farming and breeding.

With regard to the East Sea conflict, Gutierrez reaffirmed his support for Viet Nam's position on the issue.

Later in Ha Noi yesterday, General Nguyen Van Rinh, chairman of the Viet Nam Association of Agent Orange/Dioxin Victims, received 120 wheelchairs donated by Gutierrez and a group of Mexican senators and members of the Labour Party. — VNS
