Micronesia, Georgia strengthen ties with Vietnam

National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has met her Micronesian and Georgian counterparts on the sidelines of the 140th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly to discuss ways to strengthen cooperation between Vietnam and these countries.

Speaker of the Congress of the Federated States of Micronesia Wesley W. Simina said on Sunday that Micronesia wants to expand its cooperation with Vietnam, and recently adopted a resolution supporting Vietnam's candidacy for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for 2020-2021.

Meeting with Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia Irakli Kobakhidze, Chairwoman Ngan said Vietnam never forgets the valuable support of international friends like the Georgian people, during its national liberation and reunification. Ngan agreed with the Georgian Chairman that two-way trade is below the two countries' potential and urged both sides to prioritise developing economic and trade links. Ms Ngan welcomed Georgia's plan to open an embassy in Hanoi, saying the embassy will boost bilateral ties in many areas.
