– Procuracy agencies of Ho Chi Minh City and Bulgaria’s capital city of Sofia should foster links, thus further strengthening cooperation between the two localities, said Vice Chairman of the HCM City People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem.

Liem made the suggestion during his reception for the visiting Bulgarian Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov in HCM City on September 9.

He affirmed that Sotir Tsatsarov’s visit to Vietnam contributed to expanding the cooperation between the two nations.

For his part, Sotir Tsatsarov affirmed that the two countries’ procuracy sectors will enhance links and experience sharing in the field, towards stepping up judicial development in each nation.
He also congratulated HCM City on its recent achievements in socio-economic development.

Earlier the same day, Sotir Tsatsarov and his entourage had a working session with representatives from the People’s Procuracy of HCM City, during which they shared experience in implementing the prosecution right.

Last year, the Supreme Procuracies of Vietnam and Bulgaria signed a cooperation agreement to set up a legal foundation to foster their connection in the coming time.

Under the document, inked during the visit of Prosecutor General Nguyen Hoa Binh to Bulgaria from April 23-26, 2015, the two countries’ procuracy sectors will share information pertaining to crime prevention and support each other in personnel training and legal research.-VNA
