The NA leader expressed her belief that the two countries’ strategic cooperative partnership will flourish in the context of next year’s celebrations of the 25th anniversary of their diplomatic ties.
She said that the enforcement of the Vietnam-RoK free trade agreement and the re-signing of the memorandum of understanding on labour cooperation will step up the countries’ cooperation.
For his part, Ambassador Lee Hyuk said that the Korean Government and the Embassy in Vietnam are working to boost import of Vietnamese commodities in a bid to achieve a trade balance.
He agreed that the countries should enhance cultural exchange, tourism and investments.
At a reception for Iranian Ambassador Saleh Adibi, Chairwoman Ngan asked Iran to support Vietnam’s bid to secure a non-permanent seat in the UN Security Council in the 2020 – 2021 term and prioritize trade to realize a turnover of 2 billion USD.
Ambassador Adibi spoke highly of the Vietnamese National Assembly in deciding the country’s important issues and expressed his hope that bilateral parliamentary cooperation will be sped up.
