Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee Cheung Sombounkhan received Phung Huu Phu, Permanent Deputy Chairman of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Theory Council, in Vientiane on March 20.

Phu informed the host of the meeting between the Theory Council and the Lao National Social Science Council. He stressed the need to regularly share experience in theory, Party leadership and building, social management and socialist-oriented economic development in each country.

Sombounkhan, who is also head of the LPRP Central Committee’s Commission for Propaganda and Training, highly valued the first theory conference between the CPV and LPRP, which according to him will strengthen the Vietnam–Laos special solidarity.

The Lao Party, State and people will consistently preserve and bring into full play the Vietnam–Laos traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation, he said.

He expressed his hope that the two sides will work closely together in fields of mutual concern to bring revolutionary theory into life and contribute to fostering Vietnam–Laos special ties.

The two sides also agreed to share information to improve the quality of the Council’s consultancy on the two countries’ important issues for their high-ranking leaders.-VNA
