A Vietnamese delegation led by Nguyen Thi Hoang Van, Vice Chairwoman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations, attended an extraordinary teleconference of the International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties (IMCWP) held on December 10-11.
Addressing the event, Van reaffirmed Vietnam’s consistent support for the just struggle of nations and called for strengthening international solidarity among communist and workers’ parties and among democratic, peace-loving and progressive forces in the world.
The Vietnamese official also briefed participants on the results of the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam and shared some socio-economic achievements that Vietnam has obtained after 35 years of doi moi (renewal) as well as orientations and development perspectives of the country in the future.
This was the first time that the IMCWP has been held online after being suspended for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Representatives of communist and workers' parties at the meeting exchanged and assessed the current international situation, especially complicated developments in politics and security in Europe and the Asia-Pacific. They also emphasised the need to enhance international solidarity in the communist and workers' movements and expressed support and solidarity with Cuba and Palestine.
The teleconference, co-organised by the Communist Party of Greece and the Communist Party of Turkey, brought together representatives of 73 communist and workers' parties from 57 countries around the world.
It touched upon such issues as international economic, political and military developments and the solidarity with Cuban and Palestinian people and all nations in the fight against the sanction, conspiracies and belligerence of imperialism.
