Hanoi (VNA) –
The Central Committees of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) and the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) have sent messages of congratulations to the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee over the CPV’s 88th founding anniversary.

The LPRP and Lao people warmly congratulate the CPV and the fraternal Vietnamese people over the great accomplishments and successes they have achieved during the past 88 years, the LPRP’s message read.

It stressed that the LPRP and the Lao people consider the achievements and successes of Vietnam as those of their own, which is a source of great encouragement of Laos in the cause of national defence and development.

The LPRP also noted with joy that the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, two States and two peoples have been constantly strengthened and expanded in both breadth and depth across all aspects, thus bringing practical benefits for both peoples over the past time. The Lao party especially highlighted the success of the year 2017 which the two countries had defined as a year of solidarity and friendship.

 “The Party, State and people of Laos will do our best to together with Vietnam preserve, protect and develop the everlasting special solidarity of Laos and Vietnam, and pass it down to future generations in the interest of the two nations and for the sake of peace, friendship and cooperation in the region and the world as a whole,” the LPRP’s Central Committee wrote in the message.

In its message, the CPP also praised the achievements of the CPV and the Government and people of Vietnam in carrying out the Doi Moi (reform) policy, which brought about comprehensive national development, constant improvement of people’s living conditions and continuous enhancement of Vietnam’s position in the international arena.

“The CPP highly values the development of the solidarity, traditional friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, two Governments and two peoples, and is resolved to make efforts to continue consolidating and developing the relationship under the motto ‘good neighbourliness, traditional friendship, and comprehensive, sustainable and long-term cooperation”, the message said.

It went on to express the firm belief that under the clear-sighted leadership of the CPV headed by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, the Vietnamese people will gain even greater achievements and successfully realize the targets set in the Resolution of the 12th National Congress of the CPV.

Also on the occasion of the CPV’s anniversary, member of the LPRP Central Committee and head of the LPRP Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Sounthon Sayachak extended congratulations to his Vietnamese counterpart Hoang Binh Quan.-VNA
