Vietnam and Belgium possess great potential in bilateral judicial collaboration if they exchange more experience in judicial execution and delegations, according to a key diplomat.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg and the European Community Pham Sanh Chau made the remark at a recent meeting with leaders from the Court of Cassation of Belgium, discussing the two sides’ judicial cooperation programme.

Ambassador Chau introduced Belgian officials to Vietnam’s legal system and the progress made by its judiciary in the recent past.

He said he hopes Belgium will carry out judicial cooperation programmes with both the People’s Supreme Court and the People’s Supreme Procuracy of Vietnam.

Vietnam and Belgium have been seeing a thriving growth in their bilateral ties, and collaborated in the fields of investment, trade, education, and health, the ambassador noted.

The two countries share a fine political relationship and similarities in their legal systems, making co-operation in judicial matters mutually beneficial, the diplomat asserted.

For his part, Jean-Francois Leclercq, General Prosecutor of the Belgium court, said he hopes that a stronger bilateral judicial bond will be established through the exchange of legal documents and delegations in the time to come.-VNA
