HA NOI (VNS)— Angola wants to beef up co-operation with Viet Nam in various fields, especially politics, economic-trade, science and technology, health, education and telecommunications.
Afonso Van-Dunem, Secretary of the Central Committee for External Affairs for the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), made the statement during his talks with Le Hong Anh, Politburo member and permanent secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) in Luanda, Angola on Tuesday.
Le Hong Anh led a CPV delegation on an official visit to Angola which ended today.
The two sides discussed the co-operative ties between the two parties and countries as well as international and regional issues of mutual concern.
Afonso Van-Dunem spoke highly of Viet Nam's national construction and defence achievements and thanked the country for its great support of Angola, especially in agriculture, healthcare and education.
He said Movitel, a joint venture between Viet Nam's military-run telecom service provider Viettel and Mozambique's SPI and Invespar companies, is an effective co-operation model and should be developed in Angola.
For his part, Le Hong Anh said he highly valued the great achievements made by the Angolan Government and people under the leadership of MPLA in maintaining peace, political stability, economic development and international economic integration.
He affirmed Viet Nam's determination to promote the implementation of agreements between the two parties and states for the benefits of their people.
He also expressed his hope that the Angolan side will continue creating favourable conditions for the Vietnamese community to live stably and do long-term business in the country, contributing to strengthening the friendship and co-operation between the two peoples. — VNS
