Hanoi (VNA) - Chief Judge of the Supreme People's Court Truong Hoa Binh suggested Vietnam and Russia further tighten their long-lasting friendship, and called for Russia’s support at international forums.

During his reception for Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov in Hanoi on November 20, Binh highlighted the fine development of the relations between the two countries and their judicial sector, affirming that this has helped deepen the Vietnam-Russia Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation.
