Hanoi (VNA) – The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and Vietnamese people will always stand side by side with the fraternal Labour Party (PT) of Mexico in the common struggle for peace, stability, national independence, democracy and social progress, said a CPV official.

In his speech delivered at the PT’s 10th Congress held in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon state, from June 24-27, Deputy Chief of the CPV Central Committee Office Le Quang Vinh commended the cooperation and friendship between the two parties in recent years.

The two sides signed various cooperation agreements and achieved positive outcomes in communications, training and agriculture, thus helping to enhance mutual understanding, friendship and solidarity between the Vietnamese and Mexican people, Vinh noted.

The official took this occasion to thank the PT and Mexican people for their great support to and unity with Vietnam over the past years.

Vinh conveyed a congratulatory message from the CPV Central Committee and expressed his belief that the congress will open up a new period for the PT.

On the sideline of the congress, the Vietnamese delegation had a meeting with PT’s National Coordinator Alberto Anaya, who said that the presence of the Vietnamese delegates at the event showed the CPV’s solidarity with and support to the PT as the two parties are celebrating the 20th founding anniversary of relations.

Anaya spoke highly of the achievements made by the Vietnamese Party and people during 30 years of reform, considering them as encouragements to the PT. He also hoped for stronger friendly and cooperative ties between the two parties and the people of Mexico and Vietnam.

While in Mexico, the Vietnamese delegation also held separated meetings with participating international delegations, visited the Vietnam Embassy in Mexico and laid wreaths at a monument of late President Ho Chi Minh in Mexico City.-VNA
