Thuong expressed his belief that the CPJ will continue reaping new achievements on the occasion of its upcoming 100th founding anniversary (1922-2022).
He thanked the CPJ and Japanese peace lovers for providing support for Vietnam in the fight for national liberation and reunification in the past as well as national development at present.
He informed Shii of the successful holding of the 13th National Party Congress this February, which defined the roadmap and specific measures to build a prosperous Vietnam and transform the country into a developing nation with upper-middle-income by 2030 and a developed and high-income nation by 2045.
The congress also affirmed Vietnam's consistent external policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, friendship, cooperation and development, diversification, multilateralism, active and proactive international integration; and being a friend, a trustworthy partner, and a responsible member of the international community.
The Vietnamese official welcomed achievements by the JCP over the recent past, notably the successful organization of its 28th Congress, thereby further playing a significant role in Japan's politics.
Shii, for his part, stressed that ties between the two Parties over the past 55 years have made contributions to peace and friendship in Asia as well as friendship between the two nations.
He believed that the CPV will successfully realize the Resolution adopted by the 13th National Party Congress.
Both sides agreed to promote ties between the two Parties and countries via regular sharing of experience in Party building, socio-economic development, and cooperation among mass organizations.
On the occasion, Thuong thanked the Japanese Government, CPJ, and Japanese socio-economic organizations and people for assisting Vietnam in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in the supply of vaccines and medical equipment.
The two sides vowed to continue working closely together to strengthen peace, security and promote development in the region and the world, step up international cooperation in Covid prevention and control, non-proliferation and disarmament of nuclear weapons, environmental protection, climate change response, and build a world order of peace in accordance with international law.

The Japanese Communist Party is the oldest political party in the country. It’s the largest nonruling Communist party in the world.
Traditional ties between the CPV and CPJ had been further deepened via the regular exchange of visits and cooperation at multilateral forums.
During a phone call with then-Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on May 11, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc affirmed that Vietnam always considers Japan as a strategic, most important, and long-term partner in its foreign policy.
Last month, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh also met with the Chairman of the Presidium of the JCP Central Committee Shii Kazuo during his official visit to Japan.
