Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam always respects the relations and multifaceted cooperation with Tanzania and wants to further develop the ties between their two national assemblies, according to Vietnamese Ambassador to Tanzania Nguyen Kim Doanh.

Doanh made the statement when paying a courtesy visit to Speaker of the National Assembly of Tanzania Job Yustino Ndugai on September 8. 

The visit reflected the ambassador’s enthusiasm to maintain relations with the National Assembly of Tanzania that will greatly contribute to further developing the ties of the two countries’ legislative bodies for the benefit of their people, Ndugai said.

He went on to say that the Tanzanian National Assembly will actively work to deepen the ties between the two countries.

Ambassador Doanh, for his part, thanked Tanzania for supporting Vietnam during the struggle for independence in the past as well as the national building today.

The long-standing Vietnam-Tanzania relations have seen substantial progress in multiple fields since the visit of Tanzanian President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete to Vietnam in October, 2014 and that of President Truong Tan Sang to Tanzania in March last year.
