HANOI, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- To Huy Rua, a senior official of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) said here on Monday that Vietnam expects to increase theoretical exchange and cooperation in party building with China.
Rua, head of the Publicity and Education Department of the CPV Central Committee made the remarks when receiving a Chinese delegation headed by Zhang Xiaolin, editor-in-chief of the Qiushi (Seeking Truth) journal, a publication run by the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
Rua said the theoretical exchanges and cooperation could lay a solid foundation for the continuous development of the two countries' innovation and open-up causes.
Rua expected the publications of the two communist parties could enhance cooperation to provide strong support for building socialism in the two countries.
