Hanoi (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Tran Thanh Man has asked the Lao Front for National Construction (LFNC) to support Vietnam in searching for and repatriating remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts who laid down their lives in Laos during the wartime.

While receiving a delegation from the LFNC led by its Vice President Nhotkeomany Suphanuvong in Hanoi on March 27, the VFF leader urged the two countries’ front agencies to further promote their cooperation in the coming time.

He affirmed the Vietnamese Party, State, National Assembly, and people always attach importance to reinforcing and strengthening the traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation with Laos – the valuable assets of both nations.

He expressed his joy at the flourishing development of the bilateral relations, especially in successfully organising anniversary activities in 2017, saying that those contributed to educating people from all walks of life, especially youths, on the time-honoured relations.

The VFF-LFNC collaboration has reached effective achievements through their signed cooperation programmes, he noted.

The agencies will continue to closely work on the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on their cooperation and their joint communiqué on the outcomes of the international conference on building Vietnam-Laos borderline of peace, friendship and comprehensive cooperation for mutual development for 2017-2020, Man said.

He also asked the Lao Party and State to create favourable conditions for Vietnam community living, working and studying in Laos.

For her part, Nhotkeomany Suphanuvong expressed her belief that the delegation’s working visit will help the LFNC learn from the VFF’s theory and historical practices, contributing to the time-honoured relations between the two countries.-VNA
