HA NOI (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang has stated that cooperation between Viet Nam and Algeria has unceasingly been broadened to include the law-making and judicial domains, since their establishment of diplomatic ties in 1962.
He hosted Slimane Boudi, the First President of the Supreme Court of Algeria, in Ha Noi on March 29 on the latter’s working visit to Viet Nam.
He noted that Vietnamese people have always remembered the huge, valuable support and assistance provided by Algeria during wartime and then throughout the country’s rebuilding efforts.
Judicial reforms form part of Vietnam’s socio-economic development and are the crucial task of Vietnam’s relevant agencies, he said.
Viet Nam is, therefore, seeking experience in the field from other countries, including Algeria, the President told his guest.
He also took the occasion to ask for Algeria’s support for joint projects with Viet Nam on oil and gas, and in other fields that are underway in the country.
Slimane Boudi told the host that the two countries’ court sectors have established active cooperation and signed tens of cooperative documents in 2015-2016.
He said during this visit, the courts set up a paired-relationship with a view of bringing their ties to the next level.
Algeria is also pursuing judicial reforms and wants to learn related experience from the Vietnamese side, he said. — VNA/VNS
