VTV.vn - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc voiced his delight at the development of relations between the Vietnamese National Assembly and the US Congress while holding phone talks with some key Republican and Democratic party legislators on May 31.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc highly valued the US Congress' role in bolstering co-operation between the two countries.

The Vietnamese leader also asked congress to further help his country address the consequences of war. He hoped that the US Congress would continue paying attention to peace, security, safety and freedom of navigation and overflight, and the peaceful settlement of disputes in the East Sea on the basis of international law.

Congress members spoke highly of the role of PM Phuc's visit in the promotion of relations. The congress members also agreed to improve links between the two legislatures, adding that the US Congress would send many delegations to the region to step up links with Vietnam and other ASEAN nations.
