HÀ NỘI — The Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP), the Communist Party of China (CPC), and the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) have sent congratulatory messages to the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee on the occasion of the CPV’s 90th founding anniversary.

First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba's Central Committee Raul Castro Ruz, and Chairman of the Workers’ Party of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong-un also extended congratulations to Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng.

In its congratulatory message, the LPRP Central Committee described the birth of the CPV on February 3, 1930, as an important historical turning point in Việt Nam’s revolution. 

Over the past nine decades, the CPV has led all victories of the Vietnamese revolution in the fight for national independence and freedom, the building of the first socialist country in Southeast Asia in 1945 and the liberation and reunification of the country in 1975.

The CPV later initiated the đổi mới (renewal) process and made great accomplishments in national defence and development along the socialist orientation, according to the LPRP.

The LPRP and Lao people highly appreciate and congratulate the CPV and the Vietnamese people on these accomplishments.

“We firmly believe that under the clear-sighted and sound leadership of the CPV headed by Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng, the heroic Vietnamese people will reap new achievements and implement successfully the resolution adopted at the 12th National Congress of the CPV, for the target of wealthy people, strong country and a democratic, equal and civilised society, looking towards the 13th National Party Congress,” the message read.

The LPRP said the Lao Party, State and people are committed to doing their utmost to preserving and developing the traditional friendship between Việt Nam and Laos.

Meanwhile, the Chinese party’s Central Committee said in its congratulatory message that over the past 90 years, the CPV has led the Vietnamese people to complete the cause of national liberation and reunification, and promote the building of socialism with new achievements.

“We believe that under the firm leadership of the CPV Central Committee headed by General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng, the Vietnamese Party and people will constantly strengthen the leadership of the Party and the socialist regime, promote comprehensively and synchronously the cause of renovation, and proceed to the organisation of the 13th Party National Congress with special achievements,” said the message.

The Communist Party of China said it always attaches great importance to the development of relation with the CPV and is willing to partner with the CPV to intensify strategic exchanges, boost political trust, and share theoretical and practical experiences in Party building and national governance while learning from each other and providing mutual support in exploring each country’s unique path to socialism, as well as developing China-Việt Nam relation in a healthy and stable manner.

In its congratulatory message, the Cambodian People’s Party Central Committee praised the huge achievements the Vietnamese Party, State and people have recorded in development, improving people’s living standards and enhancing the nation’s position and role in the international arena.

“The CPP highly values the solidarity, traditional friendship and comprehensive co-operation between the two Parties, States and peoples,” the message said, reiterating the party’s resolve to consolidate Cambodia-Việt Nam relation under the motto of “good neighbourliness, traditional friendship, comprehensive co-operation, long-term sustainability”.

The CPP said it believed that under the leadership of the CPV, Việt Nam will gain greater achievements in realising the resolution adopted at the 12th National Congress of the CPV.

Meanwhile, First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba's Central Committee Raul Castro Ruz reiterated the commitment to the fraternal bond with the CPV and Việt Nam in his message of congratulations to Party General Secretary and President Trọng.

He said the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Việt Nam-Cuba diplomatic relation in 2020 is an important event and a vivid illustration of long-standing friendship and solidarity between the two countries.
