Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc paid his official visits to Cambodia (from April 24-25, 2017) and Laos (from April 26-27, 2017).
During their talks, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc discussed with Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Hun Sen and his Lao counterpart Thongloun Sisoulith many issues, including long-standing matters related to borders, the Vietnamese community and the promotion of economic and educational cooperation.
