HA NOI – The leadership experience of the Communist Part of Viet Nam (CPV) will help the United Left Movement of Dominica (MIU) enhance its role in the Dominian Republic's political system, a senior party official says.
During a four-day visit (July 15-18) to the Caribbean island nation by a CPV delegation, MIU General Secretary Miguel Mejia also affirmed his party's constant support to Viet Nam in its cause of national construction and development.
Hoang Binh Quan, head of the CPV Central Committee's Commission for External Relations who led the visiting delegation, hoped the two sides would continue working closely with each other to accelerate development of bilateral relations between Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic.
Referring to recent East Sea developments, Quan said China's action in placing an oil rig in Vietnamese waters seriously violated Viet Nam's sovereignty, infringed international law and threatened maritime security and safety.
He said Viet Nam was determined to safeguard its sovereignty and legitimate rights in accordance with international law, and demanded China not to repeat such illegal actions.
Mejia pledged continued efforts to foster friendship and co-operation between the two parties and peoples, as well as bilateral ties in economics, trade and investment. The CPV delegation paid a courtesy call to Vice President Margarita Cedeno de Fernandez and attended a special session of the Dominican Congress, and met with speakers of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies of the Dominican Congress. — VNS
