Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam treasures
and wishes to promote the friendship and multi-faceted cooperation with Egypt,
especially in politics-diplomacy, culture, sports, tourism, and education-training,
said National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.

At a meeting with
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in Hanoi
on September 7, the top legislator noted with pleasure the bilateral
relationship, which is thriving across fields.

Vietnamese people
always keep in mind the warm sentiment and support of Egyptian people during
the struggle for national liberation, the NA Chairwoman said, recalling how Gamal Eldin Omar,
Counsellor and Charge d’affaires of the Egyptian Embassy, stood side by side with
Vietnamese people during the fiercest time of the war in 1967.

For
his part, President Abdel
Fattah el-Sisi briefed
the host on outcomes of his talks with President Tran Dai Quang, during which
the two sides agreed on measures to enhance bilateral collaboration in various
areas and signed many cooperation documents.

As
the first Egyptian President to visit Vietnam, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said his visit demonstrates Egypt’s
determination to deepen the traditional friendship and cooperation with Vietnam,
expressing his belief that the visit will contribute to boosting the bilateral
ties in the time ahead.

Talking
about the role of female parliamentarians, President el-Sisi said there are
approximately 90 women among 600 members of the Egyptian parliament.

Egyptian
women have played an important role in protecting the traditional culture and maintaining
national peace, stability and development, he said, noting that Egyptian women
have created a momentum for social progress.

Host
and guest shared the view that parliament is a significant channel to advance
the bilateral ties, and agreed to support the two legislative bodies to step up
their cooperation, both bilaterally and multilaterally, in order to exchange law
making experience, increase their supervisory role and accelerate the
implementation of agreements reached by the two countries.

Ngan
told her guest that the Vietnam National Assembly has established the
Vietnam-Egypt Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group and suggested the Egypt side
soon form the Egypt-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group to connect the two
legislative bodies.-VNA
