BEIJING — General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and President of China Xi Jinping has affirmed that China attaches great importance to and is willing to work with Việt Nam to develop relations between the two Parties and countries. 

Xi made the remarks during a reception for Trần Quốc Vượng, Politburo member and member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee, in Beijing on Monday. 

The Chinese leader said he hopes the two sides will increase the exchange of high-level delegations, intensify mutual political trust, enhance strategic connectivity and promote humanitarian exchanges, thus developing ties between the two Parties and nations stably. 

The continuous nurturing and consolidation of the friendship between the two Parties and countries is of strategic significance to each side, Xi said. 

For his part, Vượng said progress has been made in relations between the two Parties and nations across many fields, noting the first-ever exchange of visits by their top leaders in the same year in 2017. 

He called on the two sides to effectively realise the perceptions reached by senior leaders of the two Parties and countries, while continuing to strengthen political trust, improving the efficiency of existing co-operation mechanisms, properly handling maritime issues, maintaining the development trend of bilateral ties and ensuring peace and stability in the region. 

On the same day, Vượng met with Wang Huning, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau and member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee. 

They briefed each other on the situation of their respective Parties and countries, and reviewed the past achievements and shortcomings in Việt Nam-China relations.

The two officials also discussed measures to implement agreements and common perceptions reached by senior leaders of the two Parties and nations, and to settle sea-related issues, thus improving the efficiency of practical and mutually-beneficial co-operation in different fields. — VNS
