Vietnam, Hungary agree to boost procuracy links

Budapest, April 23 (VNA)- A delegation led by Prosecutor General of the Supreme People’s Procuracy Nguyen Hoa Binh paid a working visit to Hungary from April 20-23 to promote cooperation between the two countries’ procuracy sectors.

During his meeting with the delegation on April 22, Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen stressed that his country will focus on forging procuracy links with Vietnam.

He hailed the results of working sessions between Vietnamese delegates with leaders of Hungary’s supreme Procuracy and Court, adding that his country is willing to support Vietnam in training judicial staff.

Previously, Prosecutor General Binh held talks with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Polt and President of Hungary’s Supreme Court Peter Darak, during which they shared experiences in fighting hi-tech and financial crimes and protecting human rights.

The Vietnamese official said Vietnam wants to learn from and apply successful studies conducted by Hungary’s Supreme Procuracy.

According to Binh, the two sides discussed and reached agreements related to personnel training, especially those in the judiciary branch. The Hungarian government also agreed to increase the number of scholarships for Vietnamese students to study in the country.

During their stay, the Vietnamese delegation also paid a courtesy visit to Vice Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary Janos Latorcal. The host said he hopes Vietnam will serve as a bridge linking Hungary with other ASEAN member nations.

He also expressed his desire that Hungary and Vietnam would support one another in international forums and organisations such as the International Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the Asia-Europe Parliamentary Partnership (ASEP).
