NDO/VNA – The Party and State of Vietnam highly appreciate the activities of people friendship organisations as well as intellectuals of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) in contributing to the promotion of people-to-people exchange and friendship between the two nations, said National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.

The Vietnamese top legislator made the statement during a meeting with those who have made contributions to the Vietnam-RoK friendship on December 6 in Seoul as part of her ongoing official visit to the country.

Jointly held by the RoK-Vietnam Friendship Association and the Korea-Asia Friendship Foundation, the event saw the participation of representatives from RoK enterprises, non-governmental organisations in cooperation with Vietnam, experts, scholars, and lawyers.

NA Chairwoman Ngan thanked RoK friends and people friendship organisations for their support and sustainable cooperation with Vietnam in accelerating the bilateral friendship.

The two nations have witnessed the breakthrough development of their relations across many fields, especially after they upgraded the ties to a strategic cooperation partnership, she stressed.

The enhanced people-to-people exchange in particular contributes to promoting the bilateral relationship, she added.

She expressed her belief that the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK will continue to grow stronger in the future, bringing practical benefits to their people and for the prosperous development of each country towards peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and the world.

Chairwoman Ngan briefed participants on Vietnam’s socio-economic development and international integration over the last 30 years, affirming that Vietnam has pursued its consistent foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, diversification and multilateralisation of external relations, and active international integration.

She suggested people friendship organisations in Vietnam and the RoK continue their wide range of practical exchanges to further contribute to strengthening the friendship and cooperation between the two nations.
