Hanoi (VNA) – A set of books on Vietnam-Laos special relations has been introduced to the public by the Information and Communications Publishing House.

The set contains 11 books which give readers an insight into Laos as well as its people, socio-economic situation and culture.

The books also analyse the relationship between Vietnam and Laos in the past, at present, as well as future prospects.

The set of books is expected to realise the guideline and foreign policy of the Vietnamese Party and State in further consolidating and developing the special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Laos as recommended by late President Ho Chi Minh.

The books were compiled in 2017 when the two countries celebrated 40 years since they signed a Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (July 18), and the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties (September 5).

The Vietnam-Laos relations were founded by late Vietnamese President Ho Chi Minh and his Lao counterpart Kaysone Phomvihane and have been nurtured by generations of leaders and people of the two countries over the past more than seven decades, becoming a valuable treasure of the two nations.-VNA
