| Party leader Nguyen Phu Trong meets with National Secretary of the French Communist Party Pierre Laurent
The Vietnamese leader suggested regular theory discussion between the two parties and support between the two countries at regional and global forums.
In late 2018, the PCF will organize a congress marking its centenary. Mr. Laurent suggested appropriate activities be held on this occasion to honor President Ho Chi Minh, who greatly contributed to the two Communist Parties and the two nations.

On Wednesday, Trong left France to pay a state visit to Cuba at the invitation of First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba’s Central Committee and President of the Councils of State and Ministers Raul Castro Ruz.
