The President of the Russian Social Institute, Alexander Bretralov has expressed wish to enhance cooperation with the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF).

At a meeting with the VFF Vice President and Secretary General Vu Trong Kim in Moscow on September 18, Bretralov said it is now a good time for the institute to visit Vietnam and open up new cooperative ties with the VFF.

The VFF Vice President, who is in Moscow to attend the General Assembly of the International Association of Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions (AICESIS), agreed that the relations of the two organizations should be broadened in the future.

He suggested the first potential issue for cooperation should be the re-organisation of Vietnamese workers in Russia.

The Vietnamese delegation, led by Kim, joined representatives from civilian organisations in 72 countries at the AICESIS General Assembly in Moscow from September 17-18.

The AICESIS was formed in 1999 with the aim of facilitating the sharing of experience for peace, security, democracy and human rights. The organisation also helps with the foundation of economic and social councils all over the world.-VNA
