Hanoi (VNA) - Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong held phone talks with Party General Secretary and Prime Minister of Laos Thongloun Sisoulith on February 2.

Trong thanked the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee, ministries, agencies, the Lao Front for National Construction and political organisations of Laos for sending letters of congratulations to Vietnam on the success of the 13th National Party Congress, vividly reflecting Vietnam – Laos special solidarity.

Informing the Lao leader about outstanding results of the 13th National Party Congress, Trong affirmed that the Congress has been a success, marking an important milestone in the development of the Party and country.

He also congratulated Laos' achievements in recent times, and expressed his belief that under the sound leadership of the LPRP led by Thongloun Sisoulith, the Lao people will continue reaping greater successes in the cause of national defence and construction, as well as successfully realising the Resolution adopted at its 11th National Party Congress.

Vietnam strongly and fully supports the cause of national renewal, defence and construction in Laos, he affirmed.

Speaking highly of Party chief Trong’s role and contributions to Vietnam's national construction and defence and Laos – Vietnam special solidarity, Thongloun Sisoulith believed that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) headed by Trong, the Vietnamese people will continue gaining greater achievements in the national construction and defence, building a strong and prosperous country by the mid-21st century.

On the occasion, the Lao Party chief extended his best wishes to Party chief Trong and the CPV Central Committee on the occasion of the 91st anniversary of the CPV.

He expressed his profound thanks to the Vietnamese Party, State and people for providing valuable and effective support for the Lao counterparts.

The two leaders stressed that as 2021 is the first year to carry out Resolutions adopted at their Party congresses, both countries should stay determined to overcome challenges and effectively realise the agreements set by the two Parties and countries’ leaders.

They affirmed that under any circumstance, the two sides will do their best to foster and hand down Vietnam - Laos special solidarity to next generations.
