Vientiane (VNA) – A Vietnam
Women’s Union (VWU) delegation attended a ceremony hosted by the Lao Women’s
Union (LWU) Central Committee in Vientiane on September 6 to mark the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Laos (September 5) and 40
years since the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (July
18).

Addressing the event, LWU Chairwoman Inlavan
Keobounphan highlighted the solidarity between Vietnamese and Lao people, which
has been tested through struggles against colonialists and imperialists and
national construction.

The solidarity was the decisive factor for
the success of the two countries’ revolutions and an invaluable asset passed
down by President Ho Chi Minh, President Kaysone Phomvihane and President Souphanouvong,
she said.

Keobounphan said generations of Vietnamese
and Lao officials, Party members and people, and the central committees of the
two women’s unions have worked to preserve and promote the traditional relationship.

Despite a complex global situation, the
people of Vietnam and Laos and their women in particular will carry forward
revolutionary achievements and cooperation by educating women and young people
about the relationship, she said.

Nguyen Thi Thu Ha, VWU Chairwoman, said her
union will work with the LWU to promote the relationship, contributing to
socio-economic development and international integration of each country.

On this occasion, Lao Deputy Prime Minister
Sonesay Siphandone presented the Issara (Independence) Order, second class, to
Ha and the Issara Order, third class, to four chairwomen of the VWU.

The women’s unions of nine Vietnamese cities
and provinces, including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Ninh, Dak Lak, Thanh
Hoa, Son La, Quang Tri, Nghe An and Kon Tum also received Laos’ Labour Order,
third class, for their contributions to the friendship between the two
countries.

Following the meeting, the delegates visited
a photo exhibition capturing the Vietnam-Laos relationship held by the LWU
