Get-together in Hanoi marks China’s 70th National Day

The Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) and the Vietnam-China Friendship Association held a get-together in Hanoi on September 27 to celebrate China’s 70th National Day (October 1).

Speaking at the event, VUFO President Nguyen Phuong Nga said that Vietnam and China have enjoyed a traditional friendship. The bilateral relations have been strengthened over the years, contributing to the struggle for independence, freedom and national construction of each nation.

Nga said the development of friendship between the two nations in a stable and sustainable manner, observance of agreements and common perceptions of high-ranking leaders, and well control of disputes at sea, are not only the responsibility of the two Parties and States, but also the desire of the Vietnamese and Chinese people, thus greatly benefiting international and regional peace, stability and development.

She affirmed that the VUFO and the Vietnam-China Friendship Association have joined hands with the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the China-Vietnam Friendship Association to organise various meaningful people-to-people exchange programmes.

They will also work closely their Chinese partners to arrange activities to mark the 70th founding anniversary of Vietnam-China diplomatic ties next year, Nga noted.

In his speech, Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Xiong Bo spoke highly of efforts made by the VUFO and the Vietnam-China Friendship Association and the China-Vietnam Friendship Association in fostering people-to-people exchanges, thereby consolidating the traditional friendship which has been nurtured by predecessor leaders./.
