NDO - Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s visit to Laos is his first official foreign visit in the new term and in his new role as president of Vietnam, which was made right after a visit to Vietnam by Lao General Secretary and President Thongloun Sisoulith.

These important events continue to affirm both countries’ consistent foreign policy of attaching great importance to safeguarding, constantly strengthening the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, affirming the efforts of the two Parties and States in maintaining the momentum of bilateral cooperation.

As two neighbouring countries, Vietnam and Laos have continually cultivated their great friendship and special solidarity, the foundation of which was laid by President Ho Chi Minh, President Kaysone Phomvihane and President Souphanouvong, and has been preserved by generations of the two countries’ leaders and people, becoming a valuable asset of both nations and an exemplary model of a unique selfless and faithful relationship in the world.

Amid the raging COVID-19 pandemic, the momentum of cooperation between the two countries is nevertheless sustained. The political relationship is growing well, defence and security cooperation continues to be strengthened, and economic, trade and investment cooperation is being well maintained.

The two countries have been collaborating in the battle against COVID-19, overcoming the challenges together to bolster economic recovery and growth. The two sides also work closely and support each other at international and regional forums, especially in ASEAN, the United Nations and subregional cooperation mechanisms.

Vietnam congratulates Laos on successfully organising the 11th National Congress of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (LPRP), the elections of the 9th National Assembly and provincial People’s Councils. The political and security situation in Laos is fundamentally stable and the COVID-19 epidemic has essentially been put under control, while domestic production has been bolstered, defence and security strengthened and external relations expanded.

President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s official friendly visit to Laos continues to affirm Vietnam’s strong and full support towards Laos’s cause of economic reform and national construction and defence, helping to support Laos to successfully realise the resolution of the LPRP’s 11th National Congress and the 9th five-year socio-economic development plan.

As an important political event of both countries, President Phuc’s visit continues to vividly reflect and underline the magnitude of the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation relationship between Vietnam and Laos.
