Quang Nam (VNA) – The central province of Quang Nam and its neighbouring Lao province of Sekong have agreed to maintain coordination in building a shared border line of peace and friendship.

The consensus was reached during talks between the Quang Nam chapter of the Vietnam Fatherland Front and the visiting delegation from the Lao Front for National Construction (LFNC)’s Sekong chapter in the Vietnamese locality on July 6.

Both sides also pledged to step up communications to help local people better their understanding of the Vietnam-Laos time-honoured friendship and solidarity, while increasing exchanges and consolidating the grassroots political system in border districts, including Tay Giang and Nam Giang of Quang Nam, and Ka Lum and Dac Chung of Se Kong.

Over the past time, the two provinces have made efforts to attract the involvement of border residents in developing the economy and ensuring defence-security.
