HÀ NỘI — Politburo member and Permanent Member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Secretariat Trần Quốc Vượng received a delegation of Hungary’s ruling party, Fidesz – Hungarian Civic Alliance, led by its Vice President Katalin Novak in Hà Nội on Friday.
The host emphasised that the traditional friendship and comprehensive partnership between the two countries, especially relations between the two ruling parties, have been growing well in recent years.
Talking about bilateral cooperation in economy, trade, investment, culture, education, security and defence, he said the two Governments should exert more efforts to effectively carry out the agreements reached between the countries’ leaders and coordinate to successfully organise activities marking 70 years of diplomatic ties in 2020.
Vượng highly valued the role and stature of Fidesz in the European nation’s development, as well as the promotion of multifaceted relations between the two countries.
He stressed that the two parties should increase high-level dialogues and implement the signed agreements, including sharing information and experience and discussing the outstanding issues in the parties and the countries’ relations, so as to consolidate political trust and set orientations for bilateral ties in the future.
At the meeting, Novak informed her host about the situation in Hungary and Fidesz, affirming that her country considers Việt Nam a partner of leading importance in its “Eastern Opening” foreign policy and supports economic-trade links between Việt Nam and the EU.
She also expressed her hope for stronger cooperation between the two parties to create momentum for effectively handling their countries’ big cooperation projects in the future.
Also on Friday, Chairman of the CPV Central Committee’s External Relations Commission Hoàng Bình Quân held talks with the Hungarian delegation.
