Viet Nam News - - Home Turf -

Prime Min­is­ter Nguyeãn Taán Duõng hailed the con­tri­bu­tions of for­mer Ja­panese Prime Min­is­ter Ha­toyama Yukio to the friend­ship and co-op­er­a­tion be­tween Vieät Nam and Ja­pan.

Wel­com­ing his guest in Haø Noäi, Duõng thanked Ha­toyama for his do­na­tion of 50 wheel­chairs to chil­dren with Agent Orange/Dioxin (AO) dis­abil­i­ties at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Vieät Nam-Ja­pan clinic in Haø Noäi.

He said he highly val­ued Yukio 's ef­forts to boost bi­lat­eral ties as Prime Min­is­ter, as well as in his cur­rent po­si­tion as a mem­ber of the Ja­panese par­lia­ment and Pres­i­dent of the Ja­pan-Vieät Nam Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans Al­liance.

Yukio replied that he was keen to help pro­vide hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance for child AO vic­tims. He pro­posed the Viet­namese Gov­ern­ment ask its Ja­panese coun­ter­part to in­clude AO vic­tim support in its ODA pro­vi­sion pro­gramme.
