Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has expressed support for mutual assistance in judiciary personnel training with Laos as well as a boost in judiciary work between local administrations sharing the borderline.
The Government leader made the statement during his meeting with Lao Minister of Justice Chaleune Yiapaoheu in Hanoi on August 26.
“We should promote co-operation and mutual assistance in the spirit of fraternity. The two sides should implement signed agreements in a practical and effective way,”PM Dung said, referring to accords of co-operation for the period up to 2015 signed by judiciary agencies from the two countries in the morning.
The Prime Minister concluded by reiterating Vietnam’s policy to gear traditional friendship and co-operation to a new dimension in the interest of the two countries.
In reply, the Lao minister emphasised that materialising 2010 bilateral agreements in the judiciary should be considered a matter of strategy, especially in personnel training.
Yiapaoheu explained the Lao Government’s keen interest in expanding the judiciary work down to the grassroots level.
Laos is facing difficulties in building infrastructure and is short of experienced teaching staff, he said.
The Lao Minister of Justice therefore asked the University of Law in Vietnam to assist in training teachers and providing relevant curricula for Laos.
He also invited leaders from the university to pay a working visit to Laos and share experiences in legal reforms. (VNA)
