Vietnam’s literary works on Laos are valuable assets that help strengthen the two countries’ friendship and cooperation.

Lao Deputy Prime Minister Asang Laoly made this affirmation while receiving a Vietnam Writers’ Association delegation, led by Chairman Huu Thinh, in Vientiane on December 27.

He thanked Vietnamese writers for their investigations and explorations of the past struggles for national independence and freedom as well as for their documentation of Laos’ new lifestyle development process. He said the writings encourage the peoples of both countries to extend their contributions to national development.

Writer Huu Thinh highlighted the special solidarity and traditional friendship between Vietnam and Laos. He noted a number of his association’s members were comrades of the Lao people in the past revolutionary war, stressing the veracity of their varied accounts.

Thinh said that in 2013 the Vietnam Writers’ Association will cooperate with its Lao partners to compile a collection of writings focused on Laos’ land and people. A number of Vietnamese writers were also officially honoured with prizes during their visit.
