HANOI -- China's top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng wrapped up his visit to Vietnam here on Saturday, during which he agreed with the Vietnamese leaders to enhance mutual trust and properly settle maritime disputes through negotiations.
During his three-day stay in Hanoi, Yu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), met with General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong, Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, and Standing Secretary of the Secretariat of the CPV Central Committee Le Hong Anh, respectively.
Yu also held talks with Nguyen Thien Nhan, chairman of Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee.
"My current visit to Vietnam, commissioned by the CPC Central Committee and General Secretary Xi Jinping, aims to enhance mutual trust, build consensus and boost progress of China-Vietnam relations in a correct path," he said.
Friendly cooperation remains the mainstream of China-Vietnam relations since the forging of diplomatic ties 65 years ago, he said, adding high-level exchanges between the two parties have played an irreplaceable role in the development of bilateral ties.
He proposed both sides enhance political trust and build consensus, strengthen guidance in public opinion, properly handle their maritime disputes, and promote pragmatic cooperation in various areas.
