VOV.VN - National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue hosted separate receptions for the new ambassadors of Cuba and Russia in Hanoi on August 4.
The NA leader welcomed the two new ambassadors and expressed his confidence that the diplomats, with their warm sentiments for Vietnam and their rich diplomatic experience, will help further promote the relationship between their respective countries and Vietnam.
Vietnam places special importance on the special traditional relationship with Cuba, and both nations should continue to step up result-oriented cooperation in economy, trade and investment, and step by step elevate the cooperative ties on a par with their close political relationship, Hue told his guest.
He pledged that the Vietnamese NA will continue to promote the traditional friendship and special cooperation between the two countries as well as the collaboration between the two law-making bodies.
At the reception for Russian Ambassador Gennady Bezdetko, the NA Chairman emphasized that the Vietnamese people always bear in mind and treasure the precious support that the former Soviet Union and Russia now has given to Vietnam’s past struggle for national liberation and reunification and current national construction and defence.
He affirmed that Vietnam desires to further step up cooperation with Russia across a variety of fields for peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world.
Both the NA Chairman and the Russian ambassador pledged their best efforts to boost close coordination between the two countries’ legislatures as a contribution to the Vietnam-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership.
