Phan Dinh Trac, a Politburo member, Secretary of the Party Central Committee, led a high-ranking delegation of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) on a visit to Nicaragua from October 30 to November 2.

Trac conducted discussions with a top delegation of Nicaragua’s Sandinista National Liberation Front Party (FSLN), engaged with the President of the Nicaraguan National Assembly, Dr. Gustavo Porras Cortés, and Foreign Minister Denis Moncada, and orchestrated working sessions with several ministry and sector leaders.

In these strategic discussions, the CPV official underscored Vietnam’s commitment to bolstering ties with Nicaragua, aiming to enhance the partnership rooted in a shared history of solidarity, similar perspectives on international issues, and mutual developmental goals.

Dr. Porras, for his part, highlighted the unique bond with Vietnam, applauding its remarkable progress in the renewal process led by the CPV. He emphasized that Vietnam’s successes offer valuable insights for Nicaragua and other Latin American nations, presenting opportunities to broaden cooperation.

Both parties agreed to amplify collaboration, ensuring the effective execution of the 2020 cooperation agreement. They planned to elevate the influence of their ruling parties in facilitating high-level exchanges and refining political and legal frameworks to support bilateral efforts. Additionally, they intend to boost people-to-people exchanges and mass organization interactions to fortify relations further.

The Vietnamese delegation also rolled up their sleeves in a working session with Nicaragua’s Government of Reconciliation and National Unity, where ministers of Health, Agriculture, Finance and Credit, and the General Director of Post and Telecommunications Academy deliberated on concrete cooperative measures. They resolved to advance in health care collaboration, including traditional medicine, and to explore potent agricultural and telecommunication partnerships that leverage both nations’ strengths.
