The official stressed that the two countries share many common values and have unceasingly intensified cooperation and mutual support at international forums. They have also provided timely assistance for each other in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trac called on both countries step up ties in all areas, especially politics, economy, culture, defence, security, crime fight, and other potential fields, and work closely to organise activities marking the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations, especially high-level visits by leaders of Vietnam and Argentina.

For their part, the Argentinian officials spoke highly of Vietnam’s enormous achievements and growing reputation in the world, saying that the CPV delegation's delegation would help promote the friendship and all-round cooperation between political parties of Argentina and the CPV, as well as between the States, Governments, and people of the two countries.

PJ Vice President Kicillof noted that his party wishes to further enhance its traditional ties with the CPV.

At the meetings, the two sides agreed on measures to develop bilateral relations in a more practical and effective manner, including increasing mutual visits, sharing information and experience, coordinating with and supporting each other at international forums, and boosting communications and education about the Vietnam - Argentina ties among younger generations.

They also discussed many international and regional issues of common concern.
