The friendship parliamentarians’ groups of Vietnam and Brazil are expected to act as a bridge between the two countries’ national assemblies and parliamentarians, according to Tran Van Hang, Chairman of the National Assembly’s Committee for External Relations.

The statement was made during a meeting with a delegation from the Brazil-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group in Hanoi on November 24, led by Chairwoman Jo Moraes.
