Ogata talks with CPV politburo member

March 30&April 1, 2023

Japanese Communist Party Vice Chair and International Commission Chair Ogata Yasuo on March 28 held talks in Hanoi with Communist Party of Vietnam politburo member and chairman of the Central Theory Council Nguyen Xuan Thang.

Thang said that under the Doi Moi (renovation) policy, Vietnam’s economy grew about 8% in 2022 despite the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Recalling his experience of participating in the CPV-JCP theoretical exchange meeting which has been held ten times so far, Thang said that he regards that achievements in theoretical exchanges became an important pillar in the two parties’ relations.

Ogata extended his congratulations to Thang on the successful outcome of the Doi Moi policy, and said that the JCP with its diplomatic vision works to build genuine peace in East Asia. He went on to say that the JCP pays attentions to Vietnam’s efforts to promote cooperation between peoples of the world in order to secure peace in East Asia and in other areas of the world. He also stressed the importance of developing the two parties’ theoretical exchanges.

The two confirmed that the two parties will continue their bilateral cooperation.

Prior to the talks with Thang, Ogata met with CPV External Relations Commission Chair Le Hoai Trung.

Ogata said that the JCP places importance on the adoption of the ICAPP declaration appealing for “dialogue and cooperation” and for the opposition to “block politics” amid mounting concerns among the international community over the growing arms race between great powers. He also said that the JCP highly appreciates that ASEAN with its exclusive framework keeps making diplomatic efforts to protect the principle of dialogue and cooperation in East Asia.

Furthermore, Ogata stressed that the JCP calls for establishing a multi-layer framework for peace and strengthening diplomatic efforts to prevent war from erupting in Asia.

Trung said that in each country, political parties and civil movements play a major part in efforts to maintain regional and global peace, and stressed the importance of compliance with international law, international cooperation, and regional and international organizations’ roles.

The two confirmed that they will continue to communicate their positions on international issues such as the creation of peace in East Asia and the abolition of nuclear weapons.

Ogata between March 28 and 30 exchanged views regarding international issues with researchers at the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam, the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, and other institutions.
