Dailies highlight Party leader’s RoK visit
Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh’s visit to the Republic of Korea (RoK) not only helps accelerate the comprehensive partnership between the two countries but also represents Viet Nam ’s active role and contribution to addressing regional and international issues, all daily media reported on November 14.
An editorial in Nhan Dan (People) newspaper said the visit, made on the 15th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic ties (1992-2007), will further develop the comprehensive partnership between Viet Nam and the RoK in the 21st century.
Taking place just after Viet Nam’s win for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for 2008-2009 and the Party General Secretary’s successful visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the visit represents Viet Nam’s active contribution to boosting the process for a peaceful, non-nuclear and reunified Korean Peninsular, expanding cooperation with the international community and meeting each nation’s aspirations and benefits for peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world as a whole, the paper said.
Quan Doi Nhan Dan (People’s Army) newspaper also ran an editorial, titled “Promoting Viet Nam-RoK Comprehensive Partnership”, stressing how the Party leader’s visit is a chance for Viet Nam and the RoK to review rapid and encouraging developments in their cooperation.
As a country that enjoys good relations with both the RoK and the DPRK, Viet Nam is willing to contribute actively and positively to the national reconciliation between the two Koreas as well as the peace process in the Korean Peninsula.
Following the DPRK visit in early October this year, this visit represents Viet Nam’s efforts in settling regional issues, speeding up the peace and non-nuclear process and reunification on the Korean Peninsula.
Ha Noi Moi (New Ha Noi) newspaper highlighted that the Party leader’s official visit to the RoK provides an opportunity to develop the comprehensive partnership between the two countries more quickly and practically in the 21st century.-(VNA)
