Cooperation between the parliaments of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) will continue to be boosted through important development steps, said National Assembly Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong.

Vice Chairwoman Phong made the remark while receiving her RoK counterpart Chung Ui-hwa in Hanoi on Dec. 17.

She said the two parliaments have responsibilities to create a legal corridor and a favourable environment for the development of multifaceted cooperation between the two countries and expressed her hope that RoK parliamentarians would help strengthen cooperation with Vietnam and create favourable conditions for the Vietnamese community in their country.

She also asked the two sides to accelerate works to promote the people, culture and land of each country in order to boost cooperation in tourism.

Vice Speaker of the RoK parliament Chung Ui-hwa expressed his interest in the prospect of cooperation between young people of the two countries, which he said would make important contributions to long-term development of the RoK-Vietnam ties.

He shared the same view as his host on boosting ties between the two legislative bodies at bilateral and multilateral levels.

Chung Ui-hwa expressed hope that there would be many more delegations from the National Assembly of Vietnam to the RoK to boost exchange and share experiences./.
