On behalf of the Vietnamese President, Gen. Ngo Xuan Lich, Politburo member, Vice Secretary of the Central Military Commission and Minister of National Defence, presented the first-class Independence Order to Gen. Chansamone Chanyalath, Politburo member of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party and Minister of National Defence of Laos.

Representing the Lao President, Chanyalath presented the first-class Issara (Freedom) Order to the Vietnam People’s Army (VPA) and other orders to leaders of the Vietnamese defence ministry and its subordinate agencies, along with the VPA’s General Staff and General Department of Politics.

In his speech, Gen. Lich said the first-class Independence Order for Gen. Chanyalath is the Vietnamese Party, State, Defence Ministry and people’s recognition of his enormous contributions to the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.

He noted over the past years, defence cooperation between the VPA and the Lao People’s Army has been increasingly enhanced and remains a pillar in their countries’ relations.

On this occasion, Lich also appreciated the Lao Party and State’s noble rewards for the VPA’s collectives and individuals. He expressed his belief that the countries will continue working together to nurture the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, States, peoples and armies.

At the ceremony, Gen. Chanyalath affirmed that the Party, Government, army and people of Vietnam have always given major assistance to Laos, and their cooperation achievements have considerably helped to intensify bilateral relations.

He said the special solidarity between Laos and Vietnam is hard to be found anywhere else in the world, wishing bilateral ties would be sustainable forever.
