President Kim Il Sung made an unofficial visit to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (the Democratic Republic of Vietnam at that time) in November, Juche 53 (1964).
The President’s historic visit to Vietnam served as a significant occasion which put the friendly and cooperative relations between the DPRK and Vietnam onto a new high stage.
The friendly relations between the two countries are developing through generations.
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un made his first official goodwill visit to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam this year to affirm his will to further develop the friendly and cooperative relations between the DPRK and Vietnam in conformity with the requirements of the new era and wage hand in hand the sacred struggle for bringing happiness and future to the peoples of the two countries.
Nguyen Phu Trong, the president of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, expressed his stand of giving priority to the relations between the two countries at all times and further developing the relations between the two parties and the two countries for the interests of the two peoples and peace and stability of the region, saying that he always remembers and is thankful for the big support rendered by the DPRK to the struggle for independence of Vietnam and its national liberation.
It is the consistent stand of our Party and state to carry forward and develop the friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries and the two parties generation after generation true to the intentions of the preceding leaders.
Our people value the relations between the two countries which keep supporting and cooperating with each other in the struggle for independence and socialism against imperialism, and wish the Vietnamese people greater successes in the socialist construction.
The DPRK-Vietnam relations of friendship will invariably develop in the future, too, as desired by the peoples of the two countries.
