At these functions, both sides affirmed the two nations shared a long standing relationship and people-to-people exchange, with their strategic cooperative partnership deepened and growing robustly.

Regarding East Sea issue, the sides affirmed the importance of maintaining peace, stability, security, safety and freedom of navigation and overflight in the waters, along with peacefully resolving disputes in line with international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
Meanwhile, they said the two parliaments agreed to maintain all-level meetings in flexible forms amid the COVID-19 pandemic and to create a favourable environment for concurrently fighting against the disease, boosting socio-economic development, and gradually bringing bilateral collaboration to normal.
While in Vietnam, the RoK top legislator took time to pay tribute to late President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum; visited the northern province of Ninh Binh and Ho Chi Minh City; and toured the Samsung Vietnam factory in Bac Ninh.
