Simina said his country always wishes to enhance cooperation with Vietnam, adding that it recently adopted a resolution supporting Vietnam’s candidacy for a non-permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council for 2020-2021.
The two sides noted with satisfaction that the two parliaments have established and developed bilateral relations with good outcomes while promoting exchanges and coordination at multilateral forums like the IPU and the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF).
They affirmed the willingness to strengthen cooperation between the two legislative bodies.
Since the bilateral diplomatic relationship was set up in 1995, Vietnam and Micronesia have enjoyed strides in their ties. The two countries have carried out cooperation activities in multiple spheres, especially maritime environment, climate change, agriculture, seafood farming, and tourism.
