Chinh, who is also Chairman of the Vietnam – Japan Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group, said the visit of the JCP delegation will help strengthen traditional friendship between the two parties and peoples, and enrich the extensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia between Vietnam and Japan.

He affirmed that via meetings and exchanges, ties between the CPV and JCP will be increasingly strengthened, contributing to raising understanding and friendship between the two peoples, as well as the development of international communist and workers’ movements.

Ogata, for his part, informed the host about the outcomes of the recent JCP’s 28th Congress, including the adoption of the revised Party platform that presents deep analysis on the situation in Japan, the region and the world, thereby outlining orientations and goals for the JCP.

The guest said the traditional friendship between the JCP and CPV has been increasingly promoted via contacts and exchanges in various forms, including theoretical exchanges and close liaison at regional and global multilateral forums.
