The delegation, led by Assoc. Prof, Dr. Doan Minh Huan, alternate member of the CPV Central Committee and the review’s Editor-in-Chief, paid a courtesy call to General Secretary of the Greek Communist Party Dimitris Koutsoumpas.

At the meeting, Koutsoumpas said he expected the visit will contribute to further strengthening relations between the two countries and the two parties.

He also hoped the Communist Parties of Vietnam and Greece will continue making effective contributions to the International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties (IMCWP), which was first held in Greece in 1999. The event’s 21st edition will be held in Turkey this year, he added.

In the wake of escalating regional conflicts and uncertainty, particularly disputes relating to maritime natural resources, the Greek Communist Party wants to enhance friendship among nations, Koutsoumpa said.

Huan, for his part, said the two parties have maintained a good relationship which has been constantly strengthened.

He also highly spoke of the Greek Communist Party’s activities, saying it has taken various actions to protect workers’ rights and foster forums of international communist parties’ and workers as well as left-wing forces.

He described the Greek Communist Party as a bright spot in the communist movement of international workers and expressed the wish to further bolster cooperation and information sharing between the two parties.

During the visit, the Vietnamese delegation visited the Embassy of Vietnam in Greece and held meetings with Solidnet magazine and Kathimerini newspaper to exchange experience in journalism.
