VGP - National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on August 26 met Speaker of the Moroccan House of Representatives Habib El Malki on the sidelines of the 40th General Assembly of the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA 40) in Bangkok.

At the meeting, El Malki said he will lead a high-ranking delegation to attend AIPA 41 in Viet Nam next year.

The Moroccan leader expressed his hope that the Vietnamese NA will help his country become an observer of the AIPA like the Vietnamese Government has done to support the African nation in research about the ASEAN.

In turn, Chairwoman of the National Assembly (NA) Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said Viet Nam always attaches much importance to developing the friendship and all-round cooperation with Morocco.

Ngan took the occasion to thank the African country for supporting Viet Nam’s bid to become a non-permanent member of the United Nations (UN) Security Council for the 2020-2021 tenure, as well as recognising Vietnam’s full market economy status.

Viet Nam will continue to endorse Morocco at international forums, she said, recommending both sides promote coordination at regional and international forums, particularly at the UN, the International Organisation of Francophonie and the Non-Aligned Movement.

She suggested both sides enhance the exchange of delegations at all levels to elevate the bilateral relations to a new high.

Ngan thanked El Malki for his interest in bolstering relations with AIPA members’ parliaments, including the Vietnamese National Assembly, and parliamentary cooperation mechanisms in the ASEAN and Asia-Pacific.
