El Salvador, Vietnam seek stronger ties

(VOV) -Secretary General of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front of El Salvador (FMLN) Medardo Gonzáles Trejo has expressed his conviction that both Vietnam and El Salvador and their parties are working harder to bolster their relations, friendship, trust, and cooperation.

Gonzáles Trejo affirmed that the FMLN paid special attention to enhancing the connection between the two nations and mass organisations’ movements.

He underlined the need to intensify visit and cross-cultural exchanges to deepen bilateral friendship, mutual understanding, and cooperation. 
Vietnam and El Salvador need to prioritise experience sharing, especially Vietnam’s success stories in agricultural development, he said.

During the visit from May 6-12, he was received by Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong who reiterated Vietnam’s priority given to developing friendly cooperation with traditional friends in Latin America, including El Salvador. 

Earlier, the El Salvador delegation held talks with a Vietnamese Party delegation led by Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat Le Hong Anh on specific plans for joint collaboration. 

The guests also paid a courtesy visit to National Assembly (NA) Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong, worked with head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan, and the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO).
