Chairwoman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam on April 29 welcomed a delegation from the Moscow City Duma.

Tam expressed her delight to receive the delegation, especially as the city is celebrating the 39 th anniversary of Liberation Day on April 30.

She stressed that her city and Vietnam as a whole always remember the great support from the people of the former Soviet Union and Russia for the country’s struggle for liberation and national construction.

Ho Chi Minh City has established its ties with many Russian localities, including Moscow, Tam said, noting that the two sides still hold advantages to further boost cooperation in economics, trade, security and defence.

Head of the Moscow delegation Sviatoshenko Vladimir Alekseyevich said that his group’s visit aims to intensify the connections between Moscow and Ho Chi Minh City.

He suggested the two sides regularly organise delegation exchanges and boost experience sharing and cooperation in not only economics, legislative affairs, and culture, but also Party building.-VNA
