Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang appreciated the cooperation between the two supreme procuracy bodies of Vietnam and Bulgaria at a reception on September 7 for Bulgarian Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov in Hanoi.

The President said the visit of the Bulgaria guest at the invitation of his Vietnamese counterpart Le Minh Tri will open up new opportunities for bilateral cooperation in this sector.

He called on the procuracy sectors of both countries to continue effectively implementing their agreement signed in April 2015, with focus on sharing experience in law building and enforcement, and human resource training.

The two sides should work closely together in fighting crime, particularly transnational organised crime, protecting legitimate rights of each other’s citizens, and supporting each other at international forums, President Quang said.

He acknowledged the valuable support Bulgaria has provided for Vietnam in the past as well as at the present, reaffirming that the Party and the State of Vietnam always pay attention to fostering and promoting ties with traditional friends, including Bulgaria.

For his part, Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov hailed the close friendship between the two nations, saying that it lays a solid foundation for the development of bilateral cooperation.

He updated the host on the outcomes of the talks between him and his Vietnamese counterpart, saying that they had agreed on delegation exchanges and prosecutor training, adding that there is still room for the two procuracy agencies to expand cooperation.-VNA
