The top Vietnamese leader made the suggestion during his phone talks on February 8 with Party General Secretary and State President of China Xi Jinping.

He stressed that over the past 71 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties, despite ups and downs, friendship and cooperation have remained a main flow in the relationship between the two Parties and countries, with a wide range of activities carried out in different forms, thus contributing to the Vietnam-China Comprehensive Strategic Cooperative Partnership.

He emphasized that the 13th National Party Congress was a success and set out major targets and directions which play the role as a strategic direction and vision for Vietnam’s cause of renewal and socialism building in the coming time.

On behalf of the Chinese Party, Government and people, Xi congratulated the CPV on the success of its 13th National Congress and Trong on his re-election as General Secretary of the 13th-tenure CPV Central Committee.

He expressed his belief that under the sound leadership of the CPV headed by Trong, Vietnam will successfully implement the 13th National Party Congress’s Resolution and gain new and greater achievements.

Xi affirmed that the Chinese Party, Government and people attach great importance to its traditional friendship and neighbourliness with Vietnam, and are willing to step up strategic discussions, boost practical collaboration in all fields with the Vietnamese Party, Government and people, and ceaselessly develop the China-Vietnam Comprehensive Strategic Cooperative Partnership in a healthy and stable manner, bringing practical benefits to the two nations' people and contributing to peace and stability in the region and the world.

On the occasion of the Lunar New Year – the biggest traditional festival of both Vietnam and China, Trong extended his best wishes to all Chinese Party members and people, while Xi also offered his greetings to the Vietnamese people./.VNA
