The two sides reviewed multi-faceted cooperation between the two nations from politics, diplomacy, trade, investment to culture, education, defence, and security, stressing the need for the both to strengthen their cooperation in various areas to promote potential and strength of each country, thus reinforcing the Vietnam-Thailand strategic partnership.

At a meeting with the delegation, TVFA First Vice Chairman Prapansak Bhatayanond affirmed the important role of the TVFA and the Vietnam-Thailand Friendship Association in promoting people diplomacy, expanding cooperation and understanding of culture and people between the two countries.

For his part, Lenh said the two friendship associations have contributed to deepening the bilateral relations.
