NDO/VNA—Vietnam always treasures its comprehensive cooperation and special solidarity with Laos and strongly supports Laos’s national construction and development, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has said.

In a meeting in Vientiane on November 24 with Chairwoman of the Lao National Assembly Pany Yathotou, the Vietnamese Party chief spoke highly of the two legislatures’ important role, as well as the outcomes of cooperation between the two NAs and popularly elected bodies.

He suggested the two legislatures and their committees further enhance the sharing of information and experience with legislation, supervision and deciding on key issues for their countries; and urge governments, ministries, localities and businesses to actualise signed agreements.

Yathotou, for her part, thanked the Party, State and people of Vietnam for constructing the building of the Lao National Assembly in Vientiane as a gift.

The two leaders shared the view that the two NAs need to further share experience to improve their operational efficiency and work closely together on external activities, especially at major international forums.

On the occasion of the meeting, they expressed their deep gratitude for the valuable and effective support that the two Parties, States, NAs and peoples provided to each other during their past struggles for national liberation and their current tasks of national construction and development.
