Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly  Vuong Dinh Hue

Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly (NA) Vuong Dinh Hue and Chairman of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee of China Li Zhanshu spoke highly of cooperation achievements between the two legislative bodies, Parties and countries in the recent past.

NA Chairman Vuong said he wants to work with the top Chinese legislator to instruct competent agencies to effectively implement the cooperative agreement between the Vietnamese NA and the National People’s Congress of China.

He asked China to strengthen its imports of Vietnamese commodities and continue supporting the country in COVID-19 prevention and control, suggesting that the two sides coordinate closely in land border management and work to boost exchange, trade and cooperation between their localities. 

Regarding the East Sea issue, Vuong asked for the two sides’ joint efforts to maintain peace and stability, satisfactorily settle sea-related issues, respect each other’s legal and legitimate interests in the spirit of common perceptions reached by the two countries' leaders, notably the Viet Nam-China agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of sea-related issues, and international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (1982 UNCLOS).

For his part, Li affirmed that the Party, the National People’s Congress and people of China attach importance to its friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with Viet Nam. 

He shared Vuong's view on the need to boost all-level exchanges and meetings, expressing his willingness to work together with the Vietnamese legislature in realising the cooperative agreement between the two legislative bodies.

China will continue to assist Viet Nam in the pandemic fight, Li affirmed./.
