PARIS (VNS) — Regardless of differences in opinions and policies on domestic and international issues, political parties in France always treasure and hope to boost the relationship between their country and Viet Nam.
President of the Senate of France Gerard Larcher made the remark at a working session with Le Hong Anh, Politburo member and permanent member of the Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) Central Committee's Secretariat, in Paris on October 17.
Senator Larcher said the French Senate and National Assembly pledged to further support the government's multilateral foreign policy and facilitate the ratification of documents relating to cooperation with Viet Nam in economics, science-technology, and arts.
As a member of the Union for a Popular Movement (UPM), the Senator confirmed that the UPM will coordinate with other French political parties, including the French Communist Party (PCF), in a joint effort to boost the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
Politburo member Le Hong Anh thanked the Senator and French parliamentarians for their significant contributions to strengthening the Viet Nam-France strategic partnership, especially in the fields of economics, science-technology, education-training, and socio-culture.
He briefed the host on Viet Nam's socio-economic development and discussed the regional and global issues of common concern.
The Vietnamese official earlier worked with the PCF National Secretary Pierre Laurent and First Secretary of the French Socialist Party Jean-Christophe Cambadelis to seek measures to push the relations between the parties and nations.— VNA/ VNS
