During the working session, Dung, who was tasked by Prime Minister to lead a delegation to the UK, extended thanks for the UK’s close cooperation, asking competent agencies of the two countries to quicken the process of identifying nationality of the victims as soon as possible.

He also asked the Vietnamese Embassy in London to continue working closely with the local authorities and prepare possible citizen protection plans if necessary.

The same day, Dung also signed the Book of Condolences and laid wreaths to commemorate 39 people who found dead in a refrigerated truck in Essex a fortnight ago./.
