HA NOI (VNS)— The Vietnamese Government always supported judicial ties with Sri Lanka, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told visiting Sri Lankan Minister of Justice Rauff Hakeem in Ha Noi yesterday.
Dung spoke highly of the talks between the guest and his Vietnamese counterpart, Ha Hung Cuong, as well as bilateral agreements reached by the two ministries.
Dung said that as a friend of Sri Lanka, Viet Nam was delighted to see the achievements it had gained in building and developing the country and wished the two nations would strive more to make the multifaceted ties more effective.
He also thanked Sri Lanka for recognising Viet Nam had a full market economy, and supporting Viet Nam to be a candidate to the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.
