Shii meets outgoing Vietnam ambassador

December 27, 2007
Japanese Communist Party Executive Committee Chair Shii Kazuo on December 27 met with the outgoing Vietnamese ambassador to Japan, Chu Tuan Cap, at the JCP head office in Tokyo.

In the meeting, Cap said, “I want to thank the JCP for the great support it offered to me during the four years of my tenure of office in Japan. JCP Chair Shii’s visit to Vietnam in January contributed to further developing relations between the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Japanese Communist Party.”

Recalling his visit to Vietnam in January 2007, Shii said he had fruitful talks with CPV General Secretary Nong Duc Manh and with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in Hanoi.

Referring to his meeting in November with Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet, who was on a state visit to Japan, and a theoretical discussion held in Tokyo in the same month between JCP and CPV delegations, Shii said, “The JCP and the CPV have developed bilateral relations since 1966. The year 2007 has been dedicated to further developing relations between our two parties into a new stage. I hope that the JCP and the CPV will continue to develop cooperation on such issues as peace and further engage in theoretical discussions.”

Cap said, “The year 2008 marks the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam. I hope that relations be further developed between our two countries as well as between our two parties.”

Shii asked Cap to convey to the CPV leadership the best wishes of the JCP leadership for a successful Doi Moi reform, as well as its satisfaction with the new development of JCP-CPV relations.
