Jakarta (VNA) – General Secretary of
the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong met with
Speaker of Indonesia’s Regional Representative Council Oesman Sapta Odang in
Jakarta on August 22.



The two sides agreed that Vietnam and Indonesia
have long-standing relations and both are members of the Association of
Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which allow the two countries to promote their
relations.



The deepening of the bilateral strategic
partnership not only satisfies the benefits of their people but also
contributes to building an ASEAN of solidarity, unity and strength, thus
promoting peace, stability and development in the region and beyond, they said.



They added that the development of cooperation
between their State power agencies at central and local levels as well as
between groups of parliamentarians will help increase the operational
efficiency of Vietnam’s National Assembly and Indonesia’s legislative bodies.



This will also contribute to increasing
political trust and reinforcing the bilateral friendship and cooperation, they
said.



Party leader Trong congratulated Indonesia on its achievements gained in recent
years and highly valued the country’s growing position and prestige in the
globe.



The Indonesian Speaker pledged to make active
contributions to enhancing the two nations’ multidimensional cooperative ties,
including the experience exchanges in monitoring the government’s activities and
boosting cooperation among localities such as Hanoi and Jakarta.-VNA
