The Vietnam Journalists Association (VJA) and the Journalists Association of Korea (JAK) have agreed to further cooperate and promote professional experience sharing, thus contributing to consolidating the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

The consensus was reached during their talks in Hanoi on August 26 as part of a working visit to Vietnam by a JAK delegation led by its Chairman Park Chong Ryul from August 21-28.

VJA President Thuan Huu and Park Chong Ryul reviewed the fine development of the two associations over the last twenty years.

They said that annual visits made by leaders of the associations and the two nations’ news agencies have strengthened mutual understanding between the associations.

During their stay in Vietnam, the RoK journalists attended working sessions with Vietnam News Agency and a number of press agencies in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and the provinces of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Bac Giang and Quang Ninh.-VNA
