Banquet welcomes Chinese Party General Secretary Xi Jinping

Hanoi, November 12 (VNA) – General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong and President Tran Dai Quang co-hosted a banquet for General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and State President Xi Jinping in Hanoi on November 12. 

Addressing the event, CPV chief Nguyen Phu Trong said that the reinforcement and promotion of the friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and China is suitable to the fundamental and long-term interest of people of both sides, for peace, stability and development of the region and the world. 

The stable and long-term growth, as well as the achievements of the ties between the two Parties and States, is an integral factor of the stability and development of each country, he stated. 

He underscored Vietnam’s wish to work with the Party, State and people of China in strengthening the traditional friendship and practical collaboration to make the bilateral comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership grow unceasingly in a healthy and stable manner. 

For his part, the Chinese leader held that amidst the complicatedly changing international and regional situation, the reform and opening courses of both China and Vietnam are facing many new opportunities and challenges. 

Both countries have been persistently sticking to the leadership of the communist party and the path to socialism, he noted, suggesting that the sides increase solidarity and affiliation, walking hands in hands for prosperity of their people and for peace, stability and development in the region and the world. 

China hopes to work together with Vietnam to pursue the motto of “Friendly neighbours, comprehensive cooperation, long-term stability, looking toward the future” and in the spirit of “Good neighbors, good friends, good comrades, and good partners,” thus bolstering the growth of the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries. 

Earlier, Trong and Xi visited a photo exhibition highlighting Chinese people and nation through the view of Vietnamese photographers. 

The exhibition introduced 42 photos featuring the natural landscapes, history, the development and cultural life of China. 

This was part of activities implementing the cultural agreement between the two Governments, aiming to promote people-to-people contacts between the two sides.
