He said this is also an occasion to enhance the special friendship and close-knit relations between the two countries, as well as their Parties, peoples, and embassies.
Both sides should keep strengthening this friendship so that young diplomats can follow and uphold the long-standing tradition of Vietnam and Laos, he noted.
For his part, Thang affirmed that Vietnam - Laos relations are traditional friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation.
He highlighted the mutual high-ranking visits this year such as a trip to Vietnam by General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party Central Committee and President of Laos Thongloun Sisoulith in late June, and a visit to Laos by Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc in early August.
These visits demonstrate the fact that the counties’ great friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation have been flourishing, for the sake of their people, the ambassador remarked.
He added next year, the two countries will mark the 60th founding anniversary of their diplomatic ties, which will be an event of great importance to both sides.
At the meeting, the two diplomats also discussed some issues of common concern such as the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental protection, and sustainable development.

Last year, General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee and President Bounnhang Vorachith, Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith and Chairwoman of the National Assembly of Laos Pany Yathotou sent a message of congratulations to Vietnam on such an occasion.

They expressed their profound gratitude to the fraternal Vietnamese Party, State and people for their huge, valuable and timely assistance to the revolutionary cause of the Lao people, according to Vietnamnet.
The Lao leaders affirmed that despite changes in the world and regional situation, the great relationship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Laos and Vietnam will be always treasured and preserved and perpetually exist together with the two nations, becoming a invaluable common asset, a rule of survival and development and a decisive factor of the revolution in each country.
Vietnam is also preparing for the celebration of the National Day holiday (September 2) which lasts for four days. Many activities have been deploying.
A documentary that provides thorough and systematic information about Vietnam’s history during the two resistance wars is being aired on various local television channels in celebration of the 76th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and the National Day (September 2), as reported by VOV.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on August 31 signed official dispatch No. 1108/CD-TTg on strengthening COVID-19 prevention and control during the country's National Day holiday.
