For his part, Tu affirmed that the CPV Central Committee’s Inspection Commission will work closely with its Lao counterpart to effectively implement high-level agreements between the two Parties, as well as a cooperation agreement between the two inspection agencies. These efforts will further promote the traditional friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations, he said.
