According to VNA, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and Chinese State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi will co-chair celebrations which are going to take place in the northern province of Quang Ninh on August 23.
The event affords both sides a chance to review achievements and experience after 10 years of implementing the three legal documents on land border and 20 years of the signing of the Land Border Treaty, as well as cooperation and development in border areas.
They are scheduled to outline orientations to launch key tasks to further improve management in land border areas, contributing to promoting the bilateral comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.
2020 carries an important meaning in the two countries’ traditional friendship as they celebrate the 70th founding anniversary of their diplomatic ties and look back at the neighbourly friendship built and nurtured by the late Presidents Ho Chi Minh and Mao Zedong along with the two countries’ revolutionary predecessors.
To date, Vietnam and China have successfully held 11 meetings of the Steering Committee for Bilateral Cooperation, along with other undertakings such as border defense friendship exchanges, strategic security dialogues and defence strategy dialogues. The two nations have maintained mutual visits by naval ships; conducted joint patrols on land and the Gulf of Tonkin and joint fishery inspections; and held young officer exchanges.
