Chinese senior legislator Wang Zhaoguo Friday called on the communist youth leagues of China and Vietnam to make joint efforts to further enhance the understanding and friendship between the youth of both countries.

Wang, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature, said he hoped the communist youth leagues of both sides will actively implement the proposals put forward by the leaders of both parties and continue to hold friendly meetings between the youth.

He made the remarks in a meeting with a Vietnamese youth delegation headed by Nguyen Hoang Hiep, secretary of the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union of Vietnam.

He told Hiep that the relationship between China and Vietnam has entered a new period of development, and both sides should continue to deepen friendship and cooperation, in a bid to make the two real "good neighbors, good friends, good comrades and good partners".

Hiep said he would make his own efforts to promote the exchanges and cooperation between the communist youth organizations and the young people of the two countries.

The 100-member Vietnamese youth delegation is here to attend the 9th Sino-Vietnamese Youth Friendship Meeting.
