Vientiane (VNA) – Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Laos on November 13 for a visit to the Southeast Asian country as the two countries are bolstering traditional friendship.

This is the first State visit of a top leader of China to Laos since 2006.

During the visit, the Chinese leader is scheduled to meet with Bounnhang Vorachit, General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party Central Committee and President; Thongloun Sisoulith, Lao Prime Minister; and Pany Yathotu, President of the Lao National Assembly.

Laos is the last stop of Xi’s first foreign trip after the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China last month.
