Talking to Lao Ambassador Sengphet Houngboungnuang, Dung lauded Laos’ significant achievements in national construction, development and defence over the past 45 years. 

He expressed his delight at the continuous fortification and development of the two countries’ special solidarity amid COVID-19, adding that this year they have flexibly organised a number of important diplomatic activities and achieved practical outcomes.

Dung took the occasion to praise the ambassador’s contributions to strengthening bilateral cooperation, and said he hopes the embassy will work closely with the ministry in preparing for key events in December.
