At the reception, Kgomotso Ruth Magau, noted with satisfaction the two countries’ sound relations during her past tenure and stated that her nation should avail itself of opportunities to cooperate with Viet Nam at international forums, and at bilateral level via their party, government, and parliamentary agencies.
