Budapest (VNA) – Chairwoman of the National Assembly of Vietnam Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on April 10 held a reception for President of the Hungary – Vietnam Friendship Association Botsz Laszlo during her ongoing visit to the country.

Ngan briefed the guest on the talks between the two NA leaders and expressed her thanks for the support the association has made to strengthening mutual understanding and promoting friendship between the two nations.

Ngan said the visit was the first visit of Vietnam’s NA chairperson to Hungary since the visit of the then NA Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong in 2008.

For his part, Botsz Laszlo described the association’s work to the Vietnamese delegation, saying that it helps connect small- and medium-sized enterprises and localities between the two nations.

It also introduces Vietnamese culture while helping Vietnamese tourists explore Hungary’s people and landscapes, he added.

He pledged that the association will continue its activities to strengthen friendship and multilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Ngan underlined the efforts the association has made in recent years, expressing hope that the solidarity and friendship between Hungary and Vietnam will last amid a changing world.

Thousands of Vietnamese people have studied in Hungary. They have served as a friendship bridge connecting the two nations. The traditional friendship needs to be nurtured and upheld by young generations of the two nations, Ngan said.-VNA
