Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam’s Party, State and National Assembly (NA) always attach importance to maintaining and promoting friendship and solidarity with China, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung told Party General Secretary and President of China Xi Jinping during their meeting in Hanoi on November 6.

The top legislator affirmed that the Vietnamese NA will do its utmost to make the bilateral friendship and connection thriving.

In the context of increasingly complicated situations in the region and the world, the two countries should step up win-win cooperation and settle their differences in a satisfactory manner, together building a peaceful, stable climate for cooperation and development, Hung said.

He suggested the two sides maintain regular visits and meetings between high-ranking leaders in order to roll out measures to boost collaboration, address existing and arising issues and reinforce relations between the two Parties and States.

He urged the two countries’ legislative bodies and their specialised agencies and friendship parliamentarians’ groups to promote links and experience sharing, especially in improving the quality and efficiency of parliamentary activities.

The two countries’ leaders should pay more attention to friendship exchanges in a bid to raise public awareness of incessantly consolidating and fostering the traditional friendship between the two peoples, he noted.

Highlighting remarkable outcomes in Vietnam-China cooperation in recent time, the Vietnamese NA leader called for greater efforts to be made to boost practical affiliation, especially in economy and trade, thus bringing happiness to both countries’ people and creating a solid foundation for bilateral ties to develop. Leaders of the two nations should attach importance to the satisfactory settlement of issues at sea in the principle of respecting each other’s legitimate interests, abiding by international law and bringing long-term benefits to both countries.

For his part, the Chinese leader asserted that his Party and State will always treasure and back cooperation between the China National People’s Congress and the Vietnamese National Assembly, as well as friendship exchanges between the two peoples, saying that these are important elements of the China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

In the coming time, the two sides need to increase all-level delegation exchanges, information and experience sharing, as well as coordination and mutual support in regional and global inter-parliamentary forums, thus enhancing mutual understanding, trust and solidarity, he said.
