Hanoi (VNA) – The ongoing official visit to Vietnam by Director of the General Department of Politics of the Lao People’s Army Vilay Lakhamphong will contribute to enhancing the special relations between the two countries, particularly the bilateral defense cooperation, for the benefits of their people.
Senior Lieutenant General Luong Cuong, Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee, Director of the General Department of Politics of the Vietnam People’s Army, made the statement during talks with the Lao officer in Hanoi on August 2.
Cuong hailed the two countries’ advisory bodies for proactively implementing activities to celebrate the Vietnam-Laos and Laos-Vietnam Year of Solidarity and Friendship 2017, especially the successful organisation of meetings in Laos for ex-Lao military trainees in Vietnam, a military youth festival in the north-western province of Dien Bien, a culture-art campaign on the Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia fighting solidarity, and a border friendship exchange programme.
