HA NOI (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong hosted a reception in Ha Noi yesterday for Wang Jiarui, Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
The Party chief attributed the visit's significance to strengthening bilateral ties between the two Parties and countries, especially at a time when they are celebrating the 65th anniversary of diplomatic ties.
The Vietnamese Party, State and people continually valued the comprehensive strategic co-operative partnership with Chinese counterparts, he stated.
He suggested both countries actively work to realise their leaders' common perceptions, facilitate high-level exchanges, foster political trust and practical co-operation in various domains, and gradually settle existing problems for the interests of the two peoples and for peace and stability in the region.
Wang, who is also head of the Chinese Party Central Committee's International Department, updated his host about China's latest developments and the co-operative ties between the International Department and the Vietnamese Party Central Committee's Commission for External Relations.
He said that the Chinese Party and State attached importance to the traditional friendship and co-operation with Viet Nam and want to work with Viet Nam to further cultivate the China-Viet Nam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership for more substantive results.
Earlier the same day, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh held talks with the Chinese official on measures to bolster bilateral ties in the future.
Minh assured his guest that Viet Nam was ready to strengthen political links with China, including making thorough preparations for high-level visits and exchanges as well as promoting practical progress in areas of collaboration.
Wang said senior officials of the two Parties and countries had made mutual visits over the past year while co-operative ties between the two sides' ministries, sectors and localities had flourished.
He affirmed that his visit was to further specify common perceptions reached by the two countries' leaders.
The same day, head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan held a working session with the Chinese delegation.
Both sides discussed specific measures to effectively materialise agreements reached by the two Parties and countries - especially those reached during the Vietnamese Party chief's recent visit to China - with goals of developing stable and pragmatic ties between the two nations. — VNS
