HA NOI — Hoang Binh Quan, a member of the Party Central Committee and head of its Commission for External Relations, yesterday received a delegation of the Lao Red Cross led by its President Laoly Faiphengyoua.
At the meeting, Quan said he highly valued the effective co-operation between the two countries' Red Cross Societies.
The Party and State leaders of Viet Nam are interested in creating favourable conditions to enhance co-operation between the two countries' organisations, including the two Red Cross Societies, Quan affirmed.
He expressed his hope that the two Red Cross Central Committees would increase the exchange of information and experience, especially in reducing poverty, eradicating hunger and supporting people in difficult and remote areas.
Quan also called for conditions to promote the Red Cross societies at the grassroots level to strengthen cooperation and mutual support.
For his part, Laoly Faiphengyoua affirmed the Lao Red Cross would closely coordinate with its Vietnamese counterpart to effectively implement signed agreements. — VNS
