The State leader expressed his thanks to the Japanese Emperor, Empress, Government and people for their sentiments towards Viet Nam over recent years.
The two sides talked about the long-term exchanges between the two nations and appraised the fast and fruitful developments in bilateral relationship over the past more than 40 years, and expressed their hope to accelerate the cooperative relations in the future.
At the meeting, State President Quang and his spouse introduced their guests to Viet Nam’s cultural characteristics, expressing their desire to receive more members from the Imperial House of Japan to Viet Nam in 2018 on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties.
