HA NOI (VNS)— The Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) will continue to support the efforts of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) in strengthening the exchange and co-operation among political parties in Asia, according to Party Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.
The CPV leader made the remarks at a reception held for the heads of the delegations to the 19th ICAPP Standing Committee meeting in Ha Noi yesterday.
The committee, of which Viet Nam is a member, has made remarkable contributions to the positive and dynamic development of ICAPP, he added.
Trong spoke of his belief that ICAPP's contributions to peace, co-operation and development in Asia have been invaluable, and praised it for its success in promoting dialogue, mutual understanding and experience sharing between political parties in the continent.
The delegation heads applauded Viet Nam's achievements during its 26-year renewal process under the leadership of the CPV and its active participation in ICAPP's activities.
Yesterday's ICAPP Standing Committee meeting attracted the participation of 37 delegations from Asian countries' ruling and political parties, and guests and observers from 26 countries across five continents.
During the meeting, Hoang Binh Quan, Head of the CPV Central Committee's Commission for External Relations, stressed that Viet Nam would continue to expand its relationship with the international community and create multilateral links.
Over the past 13 years, ICAPP's conferences and forums have helped neighbours form regional links and resolve disputes, strengthening trust and fostering international peace and prosperity, Quan said. —VNS
