Vietnam always treasures relations with Japan, and wants to develop these ties comprehensively, said National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan at a reception for Yukio Edano, Deputy Secretary General of the Democratic Progressive Party of Japan (DPPJ) in Hanoi on Monday.

Ms. Ngan praised the flourishing ties between the two nations, asking Japanese parliamentarians of the DPPJ uphold their role in fostering the bilateral relationship and mutual understanding.
