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.
