He made the remarks on June 18 at a reception for Politburo member and Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission of China Senior Lieutenant General Fan Changlong, who was leading a high-level military delegation on a two-day official friendship visit to Vietnam. 

President Tran Dai Quang also expressed his belief that the delegation’s visit, as well as the two countries' attendance at the 4th Vietnam - China border defence friendship exchange programme slated for June 20 - 22 in both Vietnam and China, will contribute to further strengthening the Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation Partnership between the two Parties, States and people. 

While speaking highly of the results of the talks between Vietnamese Defence Minister General Ngo Xuan Lich and Senior Lieutenant General Fan, President Quang urged the two sides to concretise cooperation contents in the statement on joint vision on defence cooperation until 2025, in order to deepen links between the two defence ministries, contributing to enhancing political trust between the two countries.

In addition, he also highlighted the flourishing bilateral relations as high-ranking leaders reached common perception on fruitfully promoting the Vietnam-China Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation Partnership.

At last, President Quang appreciated General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and President Xi Jinping’s acceptance to pay a State-level visit to Vietnam and attend the 25th APEC High-Level Week in central Da Nang city.  

For his part, Fan said the Chinese delegation’s visit aims to implementing important common perceptions agreed by the leaders of the two Parties and States, including fostering cooperation between the two armies. He stressed that the bond between the two armies forms part of the bilateral relations and noted that high-level and border friendship exchanges between the two countries in recent years recorded positive results.

Regarding the East Sea-related issues, the host said any dispute should be handled by peaceful means, with respect for each other’s interest and in line with international law, in particular to fully and effectively implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (Doc) and striving for a Code of Conduct (COC) in the region.

Fan responded that the East Sea issue should be settled peacefully with cautions to avoid affecting the friendship between Vietnam and China.
