Panama supports Viet Nam's seat in UN Security Council
Panama's senior officials made the affirmation while meeting with Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Envoy of the Prime Minister Le Van Bang who paid a two-day visit to Panama from March 4.
The PM's Special Envoy was received by Chairman of Panama's National Assembly, Elias Castillo, and First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Samuel Lewis Navarro. Talks were held with Deputy Foreign Minister Ricardo Duran and meeting took with leaders of economic, trade and service ministries.
Viet Nam deserves to be a non-permanent member of the council as it will actively contribute to keeping international peace and security, the hosts said.
As a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, Panama is willing to share experience and cooperate closely with Viet Nam.
Panama always attaches importance to its multifaceted cooperation with Viet Nam and is willing to create favourable conditions to support Vietnamese goods export to Latin America, they said, showing their appreciation of Viet Nam's achievements during its 20 years of renewal.
The PM's Special Envoy expressed thanks to Panama's government and people for their support to Viet Nam, especially during the integration process.
He also affirmed Viet Nam's backing of Panama's admission to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in the near future.
