HÀ NỘI — Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat Đinh Thế Huynh asked the Japanese Ambassador to Việt Nam to continue working closely with Vietnamese agencies and localities to strengthen multifaceted cooperation between the two countries.
During his reception for Ambassador Hiroshi Fukada in Hà Nội yesterday, the Vietnamese official highly valued Japan for its provision of official development assistance (ODA) for Việt Nam in recent times, affirming that Việt Nam considers Japan as its important and long-term partner.
He said he hopes the two nations will promote efforts to effectively implement agreements signed between their leaders, especially those reached during General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng’s official visit to Japan in September last year.
Việt Nam and Japan should enhance political trust through maintaining regular high-level visits and meetings, while improving the efficiency of bilateral cooperation mechanisms, boosting economic links and fostering coordination at regional and global forums, Huynh said.
For his part, Hiroshi Fukada expressed his joy at the fine development of the Việt Nam-Japan intensive strategic partnership, stressing that the Japanese Government attaches special importance to relations with Việt Nam.
He hoped to further forge bilateral ties, particularly links between the Communist Party of Việt Nam and Japanese parties.
