Beijing (VNA) – Leaders of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (the People’s PCC) have agreed on the contents of their cooperation at a meeting in Beijing on November 27.

At their talks, President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man and Chairman of the Chinese People’s PCC Wang Yang concurred to assign their units to coordinate in finalising the draft MoU on bilateral cooperation in 2019-2024 for signing at a suitable time in 2019.

The two sides pledged to work together to prepare for a friendship exchange between the VFF chapters in Vietnam’s seven border provinces and the Chinese People’s PCC chapters in Guangxi and Yunnan in 2019.

They planned to coordinate with relevant agencies to integrate their bilateral cooperative activities into the overall plan for celebration of the two countries’ diplomatic relationship in 2020.    

Earlier, the VFF leader had a meeting with Chairman of the Chinese National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee Li Zhanshu.

At the meeting, Man called on the two sides to intensify guidance for the strict implementation of agreements and common perception of their senior leaders, especially those concerning sea-related issues, while continuing to undertake measures to promote bilateral cooperation in economy, trade, investment, security, national defence and people-to-people exchange.

He conveyed invitations to visit Vietnam from Vietnamese leaders to Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping and other leaders of China.

Li Zhanshu said the visit of the VFF President is significant to promoting the friendly and cooperative relations between the two parties and states as well as between the VFF and the Chinese People’s PCC.

He said stronger cooperation between the VFF and the Chinese People’s PCC will contribute to taking the ties between the two countries forward, adding that the NPC wishes and is ready to enhance partnership and share experience with the Vietnamese National Assembly and the VFF.

The NPC Standing Committee Chairman also conveyed an invitation to visit China from Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping to his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Phu Trong. -VNA
