The legislators agreed to constantly improve the quality of the Vietnam-Laos cooperation across spheres in the time ahead, and effectively implement agreements between the two countries and their legislatures, and the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam parliamentary summit mechanism.

The Vietnamese legislature supports and stands ready to help its Lao counterpart organize the first summit of the mechanism in Vientiane this year, Nguyen Khac Dinh pledged.

The officials consented to maintain all-level meetings and noted their firm belief that with their joint efforts and close cooperation, the N.A.s will contribute to consolidating the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two parties, states and peoples.

Damlath said his trip aims to materialize outcomes of the visit to Laos by N.A. Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue in May 2022, and the cooperation agreement between the two legislative bodies.

He congratulated the Vietnamese Party, State, and people on the great and comprehensive achievements they recorded over the past time, especially in the implementation of the resolution adopted at the 13th National Party Congress, helping ensure political stability, national defense and security in the country, and raise Vietnam’s position in the international arena.

Damlath emphasized that the bilateral legislative ties are developing intensively and extensively, especially after Vuong Dinh Hue’s visit, with various activities, and the two sides have supported and closely coordinated with each other at regional and international parliamentary forums.

While here, the Lao delegation had working sessions with the N.A. Standing Committee's Board for Deputy Affairs, some relevant agencies and localities over the operation of the N.A.s and provincial People’s Councils.
