(VOVworld) - In his speech at the plenary session of the 130th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly (IPU-130) that opened in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday, National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung called for stronger mutual trust to forge sustainable peace and promote democracy and prosperity. Chairman Hung said Vietnam supports a world of peace, cooperation and prosperity. Hung said Vietnam backs non-proliferation of arms towards fully eliminating weapons of mass destruction, especially nuclear weapons. Vietnam strongly condemns terrorist acts and threats all over the world and hails the IPU for intensifying cooperation among legislatures, especially in the sharing of information against terrorism. Mr. Hung said: "Vietnam hopes the IPU will continue ensuring and promoting democracy. Countries need to respect and protect human rights in line with international norms and continue reinforcing the role of the State governed by law. Human rights are not only promoted by the National Assembly in its legislative and law enforcement role, but also through dialogues and international cooperation on human rights at the UN and international organizations like IPU". The top legislator invited IPU member states to IPU-132, scheduled to take place in Hanoi in 2015. On the sidelines of the event, Chairman Hung met with Speaker of Bangladeshi Parliament Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury. He said the Vietnamese National Assembly treasures and wishes to expand its ties with Bangladesh's legislature and people. Chaudhury agreed to bolster links with the Vietnamese NA in law-making and exchange of delegations. The same day, Chairman Hung visited the UN's Geneva Office where…... [read more]

Visiting the historical office, Hung said that 60 years on the images of the Dien Bien Phu victory and the Geneva Agreements remained deeply imprinted on the visual memories of the Vietnamese people and humankind throughout the world. After nearly three decades of pursuing the Doi Moi (Renewal) process, Vietnam has reaped the enormous achievements, fulfilling most of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and effectively implementing policies on poverty reduction and social affairs. Vietnam is a pro-active and responsible member at regional and international forums in which it has well performed its role as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the 2008-2009 term and been elected as a full member of the UN Human Rights Council. After 35 years of maintaining the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) membership, Vietnam will host for the first time the 132nd IPU General Assembly in Hanoi in 2015, Hung said.

Just hours after a deal that saw Greece surrender much of its sovereignty to outside supervision in return for agreeing to talks on an 86 billion euro (US$95 billion) bailout, doubts were already emerging about whether Tsipras would be able to hold his government together. The terms imposed by international lenders led by Germany in all-night talks at an emergency summit obliged Tsipras to abandon promises of ending austerity. Instead he must pass legislation to cut pensions, increase value added tax, clamp down on collective bargaining agreements and put in place quasi-automatic spending constraints. In addition, he must set 50 billion euros of public sector assets aside to be sold off under the supervision of foreign lenders and get the whole package through parliament by on July 15. But to get the accord through parliament by July 15's deadline, he will have to rely on votes from pro-European opposition parties, raising big questions over the future of his government and opening the prospect of snap elections. Leftwing rebels in the ruling Syriza party, and his junior coalition partner, the right-wing Independent Greeks party, indicated they would not tear up election pledges that brought them to power in January. A meeting of the Syriza parliamentary group on July 14 morning could see Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis and Deputy Labor Minister Dimistris Stratoulis sacked over their opposition to the bailout. There may also be a battle over parliament speaker Zoe Constantinopoulou, an uncompromising leftwinger who also defied Tsipras over the bailout and…... [read more]
