Hanoi also wants Moscow to help it expand relations with European countries, said Nguyen Sinh Hung, the Chairman of the National Assembly of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, receiving on Monday First Deputy Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Ivan Melnikov, who arrived in Vietnam on an official visit.
