He also congratulated the CPV on its 91st founding anniversary (February 3, 1930 - 2021) and the success of its recent national congress.

The Cambodian leader emphasised that with a clear-sighted vision, the CPV has led Vietnam to enormous achievements in socio-economic development and maintaining peace, stability, and prosperity. He congratulated Vietnam on successfully performing its role as Chair of ASEAN in 2020 and a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for 2020 - 2021.

He expressed his belief that the CPV will successfully carry out the policy orientations and solutions adopted at the 13th National Congress so as to turn Vietnam into a strong, equal, democratic, and civilised nation.

Appreciating Hun Sen’s congratulations, Trong thanked the CPP Central Committee, as well as institutions and organisations of Cambodia, for their congratulatory messages to Vietnamese partners, which he described as demonstrations of the traditional relations and good neighbourliness between the two countries.

The Vietnamese leader also informed Hun Sen about the outcomes of the CPV’s 13th National Congress and re-affirmed the implementation of future orientations for the Vietnamese Party and State’s goal of comprehensive development in the coming decades.

He also highly valued Cambodia’s considerable achievements in the recent past, voicing his wish that the Cambodian people will surmount difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and achieve sustainable development and long-term prosperity, thus actively contributing to the maintenance of peace, stability, and development in the region and the world.

The press release noted the two leaders expressed their respect for the time-tested relations while speaking highly of the strong development of ties between the two parties and countries in all spheres, which has generated common benefits for the Cambodian and Vietnamese people.
