Vietnam congratulates LPRP on 62th founding anniversary

Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Nguyen Ba Hung today sent greeting flowers from Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and the Vietnamese Embassy to the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (LPRP) on the occasion of the party's 62th founding anniversary.

At his meeting with deputy head of the LPRP's Commission for External Relations Somphone Sychaleun, Hung congratulated Laos on its great achievements in national construction and defence over its Party's 62 years leadership, saying these have contributed to strengthening the special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries. The Party, State and people of Vietnam will exert every effort to work with the Lao side to further promote the special solidarity between the two countries.

Somphone Sychaleun thanked the warm sentiments that the Party and people of Vietnam have given to Laos. He stressed that the Party, State and people of Laos will always remember the sincere and whole-hearted support of Vietnam during the struggle for national liberation in the past and the current national construction and defence.

He noted that 2017 is important for the countries as they are celebrating the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties and 40 years of the Treaty of Cooperation and Friendship. This is a good chance for both sides to educate the young generation on the significance of promoting the special and unique ties between Vietnam and Laos.
