BEIJING, Feb. 23 -- Chinese top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng pledged on Sunday to step up cooperation with the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF), and enhance bilateral ties.
Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the remarks while having talks with Nguyen Thien Nhan, president of the VFF Central Committee.
Calling Vietnam an important neighbor and cooperation partner of China, Yu said China attaches great importance to its relations with Vietnam and sticks to a friendly policy to the country.
Last month, Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, reached important consensus with Nguyen Phu Trong, general secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, on deepening bilateral comprehensive strategic cooperation in the next phase in their phone conversation. The two leaders had shaped direction for future development of China-Vietnam ties, Yu said.
