The Vietnamese Party, State and people will always work with the Party, State and people of Laos to deepen traditional friendship between the two countries, she affirmed.

She expressed her belief that the country will achieve greater successes in implementing targets set by the Lao Party and State, thus contributing to building Laos into a country of peace, independence, democracy, unity and prosperity.
