Vietnam and China will continue to boost cooperation in sports, which contributes to the enhancement of bilateral relations, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan said Wednesday as he met with visiting head of China's General Administration of Sports, Liu Peng.

Nhan highly evaluated the visit by the Chinese sports delegation, which helped in developing sports cooperation between the two countries to a new level.

Over more than 60 years since the two countries established diplomatic relations, both sides have attached attention not only to promote political, economic and diplomatic cooperation, but also to fasten cultural, tourism and sports ties, Nhan said.

The two sides should support each other in participating more to international sports tournaments, being a power in the regional and international sports arena. Vietnam hopes to get a continuous support from China in hosting the 18th Asian Games in 2019, Nhan added.

China will assist Vietnam in training sports athletes and coaches, helping improve Vietnam's achievements in international sports tournaments, including the 17 Asian Games in South Korea's Incheon in 2014 and London Olympics in 2012, Liu said.
