Viet Nam News - - Home Turf -

The Viet­namese Na­tional Assem­bly has urged its min­istries and lo­cal­i­ties to in­ten­sify links with Laos in the fields of eco­nomics, ed­u­ca­tion-train­ing and se­cu­rity-de­fence, NA Chair­man Nguyeãn Sinh Huøng said in Vientiane.

Huøng was speak­ing to Lao Prime Min­is­ter Thongs­ing Tham­mavong while on at­tend­ing the 35th Gen­eral Assem­bly of the ASEAN In­ter-par­lia­men­tary Assem­bly (AIPA-35). He said he val­ued the Lao PM's con­tri­bu­tions to the de­vel­op­ment of the two coun­tries' re­la­tions, es­pe­cially re­lat­ing to pol­i­tics, eco­nomics, in­vest­ment and trade.

The Lao PM thanked the Viet­namese NA for its ac­tive support in help­ing the Lao law­mak­ing body host AIPA-35. He said his coun­try would un­der­take max­i­mum ef­forts to con­sol­i­date spe­cial friend­ship and com­pre­hen­sive co-op­er­a­tion with Vieät Nam.

Later, at a meet­ing in Haø Noäi with the Lao Min­is­ter of Na­tional De­fence, Sengn­uon Sayn­halat, Pres­i­dent Tröông Taán Sang said he be­lieved Laos and Vieät Nam would con­tinue to co-op­er­ate for the pros­per­ity and de­vel­op­ment of both coun­tries as well as the re­gion.

The Lao de­fence leader thanked Vieät Nam for sup­port­ing his coun­try dur­ing its strug­gle for in­de­pen­dence and the on­go­ing process of na­tional-build­ing. He pledge to do his ut­most to pro­mote the friend­ship and co-op­er­a­tion be­tween Vieät Nam and Laos.
