South Korean president's visit ‘a milestone,’ says Party chief

Vietnam-South Korea relations will continue to develop successfully in the future, Vietnam Communist Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said at a Friday meeting with visiting South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol.

Trong welcomed the South Korean President and his wife's visit after the upgrading of the two countries’ official relationship to a "comprehensive strategic partnership" late last year, according to an announcement by the Communist Party Central Committee's Commission for External Relations.

He emphasized that the relationship between the two countries had been tested over time and had the potential to further develop for the benefit of peoples in both countries. He suggested the two sides plan more official visits to boost cooperation.

He said Vietnam would continue to promote economic renovation to be a good friend and reliable partner of all countries in the world, especially "close" countries like South Korea.

Yoon said Vietnam had been the focal point of South Korean cooperation in Asia, and the two countries have valued each other for the past 30 years. He said that the visit will be a new beginning for the next 30 years of South Korea - Vietnam relations.

Yoon suggested both sides pay attention to training their younger generations. He said that South Korea would continue to prioritize the training of Vietnamese students and the creation of favorable conditions for Vietnamese students to study at South Korean tech schools.
