President Xi back home after APEC summit, state visits to Vietnam, Laos

It marks the first visit in 11 years by a Chinese head of state and top CPC leader to this neighboring country in Southeast Asia.

Vientiane is the final leg of Xi's first overseas trip after the 19th CPC National Congress.

In its November 13 issue, the People Daily published a story stating that, whilst in Hanoi, the two countries' leaders agreed to boost the bilateral, comprehensive, strategic, cooperative partnership in the interests of the two peoples.

After the meeting, the two leaders witnessed the signing of a cooperation deal between the two foreign ministries. They should better bring into play the bilateral cooperation steering committee's role in strengthening ties and settling emerging issues in bilateral relations in a timely manner. As a landmark project in China-Laos cooperation in public welfare, the new hospital is expected to be put into use in 2021.

In his meeting with President Tran Dai Quang, Xi stressed that the two countries should consolidate the momentum of the steady growth of the bilateral trade, and speed up the alignment of their development initiatives-the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative and Vietnam's "Two Corridors and One Economic Circle" plan.

China and Vietnam released a joint statement saying that they would work together to maintain "peace and stability" in the South China Sea.

While disputes are yet to be settled, the two countries should exercise self-restraint and refrain from actions that further complicate the situation, he said, adding that Vietnam welcomes positive progresses of ASEAN-China negotiations and adoption of the framework Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC).

"The cooperation of our two countries should be more focused on improving people's livelihood, thus benefiting more local residents", said Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, and Nguyen Phu Trong, general secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee, agreed to carry forward, preserve and promote the traditional friendship between China and Vietnam.
