Vietnam, Brazil communist parties cement ties

General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong has expressed his wish that the CPV and the Communist Party of Brazil (PCB) will enhance ties in the future, thus deepening links between the two countries.

While receiving PCB President Jose Renato Rabelo in capital Hanoi on Tuesday, Trong highly valued the Party's contributions to left-wing movements in Latin America, Vietnam's state-run news agency reported.

Trong expressed his belief that PCB will reap greater achievements in the struggle for the interest of working people, as well as for the common fight of Brazilian and Latin American people for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.

For his part, Rabelo congratulated Vietnam on its socio- economic achievements over the past time and its growing influence in the region and the world, and expressed his desire to further promote solidarity, friendship and bilateral cooperation between the two parties, nations and peoples.

Earlier, the Brazilian guest held talks with head of the CPV Central Committee's Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan. The two sides discussed ways to bolster future cooperation between the two parties, including the exchange of delegations and sharing of information and research experience.

They agreed to work together at multilateral forums of political parties, and help each other develop ties with political parties in Southeast Asia and Latin America.
