Viet Nam has made efforts to contribute to the Asia-Africa cooperation, affirmed the Ambassador, adding that the nation has committed to joining with member countries of the AALCO to launch activities of the organization, and expressing the desire to learn experience from other nations in international legal issues.

Viet Nam’s participation in the organization has marked a new development step in the international integration in legal issues.
