The Vietnam Lawyers Association (VLA) and the Cambodian Bar Association (CBA) agreed to further their bilateral ties in the coming time during their working session in Phnom Penh on November 4.

The meeting forms part of the visit to Cambodia by a VLA delegation led by its Vice President and Secretary General Le Minh Tam from November 3-6.

The two sides also reached a consensus on the need to accelerate their membership operations at the ASEAN Law Association and the International Association of Democratic Lawyers.

They held that bilateral cooperation plays an important role in the context that the two countries are on the path of international integration.

Both Tam and CBA President Bun Hon were unanimous on the need for the two associations to implement plans to promote cooperation between lawyers based on their existing relationship, especially in the field of human resources development.

The exchange of professional skills and the enhancement of lawyers’ role will actively contribute to ensuring legitimate rights and interests of each country’s citizens while serving the cause of national construction and development.

Earlier on in the day, the Vietnamese delegation met with Cambodian Secretary of State and Ministry of Justice Hy Sophea and the Vietnamese Embassy’s staff in Cambodia.-VNA
