Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son said the visit was an especially important event and was successful in all aspects.

At the reception for Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi on Dec. 1, Thuong stressed that Vietnam and China are close neighbors, with several similarities regarding history, culture, and the determination to follow socialism under the Communist Party's leadership.

Vietnam considers its relationship with China as a strategic choice and top priority in its foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, diversification and multilateralization, he said, suggesting that both countries bolster cooperation in important fields like diplomacy, defense and security, as well as improving the quality and effectiveness of collaboration on multiple fields, focusing on economy-trade, investment, transport and people's exchange.

Wang said at the reception that China values its friendly, comprehensive and cooperative relationship with Vietnam, considering it to be a priority when it comes to China's neighbor diplomacy policies. China always supports Vietnam in its efforts for industrialization and modernization, he added.
