Speaking at the Program, Chairman of the Vietnam - Laos Friendship Association Do Dang Tuoc said that, looking back on the historical journey, since the birth of the Indochinese Communist Party for the leadership of the revolutionary movement, the traditional relationship and the faithful bond among peoples of the two countries laid by President Kaysone Phomvihane and President Suphanouvong has been cultivated by generations of leaders of the two Parties, States and peoples of the two countries and become the valuable property of the peoples of the two countries.

On September 5, 1962, Vietnam and Laos officially established diplomatic relations. This is an important historical event and a very special milestone opening a new chapter in the friendship and cooperation between the two countries, simultaneously creating favorable conditions for the peoples of the two countries to work together to fight against a common enemy, contributing to bringing the two countries' revolutions from one victory to another.

After 1975, the relationship between the two countries entered a new era of peace, independence and joint building of socialism. In order to elevate the special relationship between Vietnam and Laos, on July 18, 1977, the Governments of the two countries signed the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation. The signing of the Treaty affirms the innocent and selfless feelings and commitment to stand side by side in the cause of independence, peace, and socio-economic development of each country. This is also a solid basis for strengthening and promoting relations between the two countries, creating a premise for many comprehensive cooperation agreements in the future.

Entering a new phase, in the context of complicated developments in the world and in the region, the special relationship between Vietnam and Laos has been constantly developing in all fields. The two countries Vietnam - Laos have achieved many important accomplishments in national construction and development; at the same time, always give each other support and help in the spirit of comrades-in-arms.
