Binh hailed the RoK as the largest investor in Vietnam with two-way trade at over $64 billion. There are currently 50,000 Vietnamese brides among the over 160,000 Vietnamese people in the RoK.
He expressed his delight at Korean head coach Park Hang-seo’s substantial contributions to Vietnam’s football, thus fostering bonds between the two nations.
The host said Vietnam is stepping up the fight against corruption and has achieved important results.
As Vietnam and the RoK are members of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, he suggested that both sides should uphold the spirit of preventing crimes and enhance international cooperation in the field.
Vietnam is ready to partner with the RoK in line with the convention, Binh said.
He lauded the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office of the RoK and Vietnam’s Supreme People’s Procuracy for signing the 2019-2022 cooperation agreement, and hoped that the RoK would assist Vietnam in studying legal institutions; training prosecutors; and adopting modern technology in the management of cyber, transnational, organised, drug and human trafficking, and corruption crimes.
Moon wished that the Deputy PM would continue supporting ties between the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office of the RoK and Vietnam’s Supreme People’s Procuracy, and expressed readiness to share experience with Vietnam in anti-corruption.
The guest also hoped that Vietnam will support the RoK build a peace mechanism for the Korean peninsula.
In this regards, Binh affirmed that Vietnam always supports and holds responsibility for helping build the Korean peninsula of peace, cooperation, and development.
