Shii talks with CPV Standing Secretary Anh

September 23 & 24, 2013

Japanese Communist Party Chair Shii Kazuo on September 23 had talks with Le Hong Anh, standing secretary of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam and member of the Political Bureau, about ways to create lasting peace in East Asia and to further develop their parties’ relations at the CPV head office in Hanoi.

Invited by the CPV Central Committee, a JCP delegation led by Shii arrived in Hanoi on September 22. Following Vietnam, the delegation plans to visit Indonesia.

The JCP proposes that the ASEAN approach regarding peaceful security be also applied to Northeast Asia. The delegation is tasked to have a wide range of exchanges of opinions on how to create lasting peace in the East Asia region.

In the talks with Anh, Shii said that the JCP wants to further develop the framework of the JCP-CPV relations that was agreed upon in 2007 and to contribute to the further development of the 40-year relationship between the two countries.

In addition to the need to learn from the ASEAN efforts to develop dialogue and mutual trust in regard to security in Southeast Asia, Shii also said that the JCP looks forward to having implemented a multinational treaty like the Treaty of Cooperation and Amity (TAC) in Northeast Asia.

Anh stated that he supports and welcomes Shii’s proposals. He stressed the need to further develop the ASEAN efforts to establish peace and security in East Asia.

Shii explained about the advance the JCP made in the Tokyo Metropolitan and Upper House elections and the political situations that lie behind it.

He stated that the JCP opposes Japan’s nuclear plant exports based on its call for the nation’s swift departure from nuclear power generation as well as Japan’s participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, which he strongly feels contradicts the democratic economic order emerging in the 21st century world.

They also talked about the need to increase the number of meetings of their party leadership as well as increase the number of theoretical exchanges.
