Buenos Aires (VNA) - A delegation from the Vietnamese National Assembly led by Vice Chairwoman of the NA's Committee for Culture, Education, Youth and Children Ngo Thi Minh has paid a working visit to Argentina from December 10-15.

The visit aims to contribute to promoting and deepening the strategic partnership between the two countries’ State, people and legislative bodies.  

During their stay, Vietnamese officials paid courtesy visits to leaders of the Senate of Argentina. They also worked with representatives from the Senate’s Committee on Education and Culture; the Buenos Aires City Legislature, and those from the Argentina-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians' Group and the Argentina-Vietnam Culture Institute.

At working sessions, Argentine parliamentarians said the Vietnamese delegation’s visit has helped strengthen not only cooperation between the two sides’ legislatures but also the traditional friendship between the two governments and peoples, especially in 2018 when the two countries marked the 45th anniversary of their diplomatic ties.

The Argentine side stressed that Vietnam is always its leading partner in Asia, expressing the hope to expand the bilateral relations in all fields.

Argentine officials said the open foreign policy to befriend with all countries in the world has helped Vietnam not only achieve breakthrough development in economy and social welfare, but also increase her role and position in the international arena.

For her part, Minh, who is also Chairwoman of the Vietnam-Argentina Friendship Parliamentarians' Group, said the visit offers a good chance for the two countries’ legislative bodies to share experience and operation, and enhance cooperation between the two friendship parliamentarians' groups and mutual understanding between the two peoples, thus tightening the bilateral relations.

Minh stressed that Vietnam always looks to further foster comprehensive
relations with Argentina in the time to come, towards boosting cooperation across fields.

During meetings, the two sides shared experience in issues related to culture, education and youth so that they can best perform their role in monitoring the implementation of laws, resolutions of the National Assembly, as well as policies in these fields.

The Vietnamese delegation also discussed with Argentine partners orientations and measures to enhance cooperation in the coming time.

During the visit, Vietnamese delegates laid a wreath at the monument of President Ho Chi Minh in Buenos Aires, and visited the Vietnamese Embassy in Argentina.-VNA
