Print

National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung has affirmed that Vietnam always wishes to boost the traditional friendship and multi-faceted cooperation with Norway and other European countries.

The legislative leader made the affirmation at his April 17 reception for Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who is on a three-day official visit to Vietnam.

For her part, the Norwegian PM suggested the parliaments of the two countries increase cooperation to bolster joint programmes between the two Governments, especially those in the field of marine economic and energy, adding that Norway is ready to work with Vietnam in maritime transport, fishery and ship building, which are the strength of the North Europe country.

The two leaders took note of the good ties between the two parliaments, particularly Norway’s support for Vietnam in organising the 132nd Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly, which took place in Hanoi from March 28 to April 1, and in issuing the Hanoi Declaration.

They agreed to work together to set up the Friendship Parliamentarians Groups while increasing the exchange of delegations and the sharing of experience in law making and supervising law enforcement.-VNA
