HANOI, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping and Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong vowed to further strengthen bilateral ties, during a meeting here Wednesday.

Xi, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, extended to Trong the warm and sincere greetings of Chinese President Hu Jintao, who is also Secretary General of the CPC Central Committee and Chairman of the Central Military Commission.

The Chinese vice president also congratulated Trong on his successful visit to China in October this year.

Xi said: "China-Vietnam friendship is the common treasure created and nurtured by our leaders of the older generations."

"We should cherish the friendship," he said.

He recalled the major contributions of late Vietnamese revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh (1890-1969) to the friendship between China and Vietnam, saying the normalization of bilateral ties in the past two decades showed the friendship between the two countries would last from generation to generation as long as both sides persisted in the principle of friendship, cooperation and mutual benefit.

The two countries should properly handle their divergence and contradictions in a positive way and based on the principle of prioritizing the friendship and development of the two countries so as to safeguard stability in the region, the Chinese vice president said.
