The Lao Embassy and Vietnamese Embassy in Beijing, China have jointly organized an exchange event and sport competitions to celebrate the Laos-Vietnam Friendship and Solidarity Year 2022 which marks the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two neighbours (Sep 5, 1962-2022) and the 45th anniversary of Laos-Vietnam Treaty for Amity and Cooperation (Jul 18, 1977-2022).
The events were participated by Lao Ambassador to China Khamphao Eunthavanh, her Vietnamese counterpart Pham Sao Mai, staff of the two embassies and journalists of the two countries.
Delivering remarks at the exchange event, held at the Vietnamese embassy on Sunday, Lao Ambassador Khamphao Eunthavanh and her Vietnamese counterpart highlighted the longstanding solidarity and mutual assistance between Laos and Vietnam, especially during their struggle against imperialists and feudalist administrations.
Under the clear-sighted leadership of then Indochina Communist Party, the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party and the Communist Party of Vietnam, the Lao and Vietnamese people fought side by side in prolonged wars against common enemy and feudalist administrations to seize independence and sovereignty for their beloved motherlands.
Both ambassadors noted that after the two countries were fully liberated, the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Laos and Vietnam founded by President Ho Chi Minh, President Kaysone Phomvihane and President Souphanouvong have been nurtured and protected with blood and sweat of warriors and people of the two countries from one generation to the next, and have been deepened in all areas.
Ambassador Khamphao Eunthavanh expressed her appreciation on the socio-economic development achievements Vietnam has recorded over the past two years despite of challenges including Covid-19 pandemic, and Vietnam’s successful hosting of the 31st SEA Games in May 2022.
She also spoke highly of the priceless mutual assistance between the two countries both during the national liberation cause and the current time of national development as well as over the past two years of fight against Covid-19.
