As a traditional friend of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Viet Nam shares with the country its happiness over the latter's nation-building achievements, Son said.
Viet Nam intends to consolidate and strengthen the time-honoured friendship for the benefit of both peoples and for peace, stability, co-operation and development in the region, he said.

He expressed his desire to speed up experience-sharing in nation-building and development with Viet Nam.
