For his part, the Chinese diplomat applauded the Hà Nội official’s cooperation proposals, saying that these would significantly contribute to further deepening the common perceptions reached between senior leaders of the two countries.
He stressed that China always attached importance to its friendship and cooperation with Việt Nam, and it was ready to share experience with Việt Nam and Hà Nội as well.
