Highly valuing cooperation between the KPRF and the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), President Quang expressed his belief that with its prestige and experience, the KPRF will continue to promote its role as an important political force of Russia to contribute to national construction and development.

The warm and trustworthy relationship between Vietnam and the former Soviet Union has been tested by time and history, he said.

The leader noted that the Vietnamese Party, State and people always keep in mind and treasure sentiments and valuable support of Russian communists and people to Vietnam during its struggle for national liberation as well as the present cause of national defence and construction.

Vietnam wishes to deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia in a more effective and pragmatic fashion, he emphasised.

President Quang urged the two parties to further enhance political ties and maintain delegation exchanges in order to increase mutual understanding and trust, while organising exchange programmes between young Party members to educate them about the traditional cooperation between the two parties.

Later the same day, President Tran Dai Quang met with Sidelnikov Nikolai Ivanovich, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and experts of the national scientific research institute for medicines and essential oils.

He praised the experts’ support to Vietnamese officials and doctors in protecting the body of President Ho Chi Minh over the past years.

He called on the Russian experts to continue assisting the management board of President Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum through scientific research, technological transfer and training of health workers and technicians in order to better protect President Ho Chi Minh’s corpse.-VNA
