NDO/VNA – Politburo member and permanent member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Secretariat, Tran Quoc Vuong, led a high-ranking Party delegation to pay a working visit to Angola from December 5-7.

During his stay, Politburo member Vuong held talks with Secretary General of the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), Álvaro de Boavida Neto, and met with member of the MPLA’s Political Bureau and First Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Emília Carlota Dias.

On the occasion, the two parties signed a new cooperation agreement for the 2018-2023 period.

At the meetings, both sides informed each other of the situation of their respective Party and country, while exchanging views on regional and international situations, as well as measures to intensify the relations between the two Parties and countries in the future.

The Angolan leaders appreciated the visit, considering it as a milestone and a chance to boost the bilateral ties.

Speaking of Vietnam’s role and position in the region and the world and its “Doi moi” (Renewal) achievements, they said Angola wants to learn from Vietnam’s experience in national building and development, as well as in Party building, corruption prevention and control, and personnel training.

They suggested that both sides step up their collaboration in agriculture, health, education and training, and energy.

For his part, Politburo member Vuong affirmed that the Vietnamese Party, State and people always remember the support from the MPLA and the Angolan people for Vietnam’s past struggle for national liberation and its current nation building and safeguarding cause.

He expressed his delight at the positive development between the two parties over recent years, which, he said, has contributed to fostering the traditional friendship and solidarity between the two countries and their people.

Both sides agreed to make more efforts to effectively implement the freshly-inked cooperation agreement, with the focus on the exchange of all-level delegations, the sharing of information and experience, and the maintenance of coordination at multilateral forums.

The Vietnamese Party official also met representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy and the Vietnamese community in Angola, during which he encouraged them to unite and exert efforts to overcome all difficulties in order to stabilise their lives, integrate themselves into the host country, and contribute more to the bilateral relations.

The Party delegation also laid flowers on the Ho Chi Minh Avenue in Luanda and visited the António Agostinho Neto Memorial to commemorate the late Angolan President.
