BEIJING — Leaders of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (the People’s PCC) have agreed on the contents of their cooperation at a meeting in Beijing on Tuesday.
During their talks, President of the VFF Central Committee Trần Thanh Mẫn and Chairman of the Chinese People’s PCC Wang Yang concurred to assign their units to coordinate in finalising the draft MoU on bilateral co-operation in 2019-24 for signing at a suitable time in 2019.
The two sides pledged to work together to prepare for a friendship exchange between the VFF chapters in Việt Nam’s seven border provinces and the Chinese People’s PCC chapters in Guangxi and Yunnan in 2019.
They planned to co-ordinate with relevant agencies to integrate their bilateral co-operative activities into the overall plan for celebration of the two countries’ diplomatic relationship in 2020.
Earlier, the VFF leader had a meeting with Chairman of the Chinese National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee Li Zhanshu.
At the meeting, Mẫn called on the two sides to intensify guidance for the strict implementation of agreements and common perception of their senior leaders, especially those concerning sea-related issues, while continuing to undertake measures to promote bilateral co-operation in economy, trade, investment, security, national defence and people-to-people exchange.
He conveyed invitations to visit Việt Nam from Vietnamese leaders to Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping and other leaders of China.
Li Zhanshu said the visit of the VFF President was significant to promoting the friendly and co-operative relations between the two parties and states as well as between the VFF and the Chinese People’s PCC.
He said stronger co-operation between the VFF and the Chinese People’s PCC would contribute to taking the ties between the two countries forward, adding that the NPC wished and was ready to enhance partnership and share experience with the Vietnamese National Assembly and the VFF.
The NPC Standing Committee Chairman also conveyed an invitation to visit China from Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping to his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyễn Phú Trọng. — VNS
