The pledge came during a meeting here between Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan

Hu said the leaders of the two countries have made top-level designs and strategic plans for the development of bilateral ties during their exchange of visits last year, Chinese new agency Xinhua reported.
China is willing to work with Vietnam to follow through on what the leaders of both countries have made so as to move forward China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership, he stressed.
Noting that China welcomes Phuc leading a delegation to the China International Import Expo (CIIE) to be held in November, Hu said China stands ready to facilitate Vietnamese companies' participation.
Phuc, for his part, said Hu's attendance at the WEF not only shows the importance attached by China to the Vietnam-China relations, but also demonstrates the brotherly friendship between the two countries.
The Vietnamese prime minister noted that developing good neighborliness and friendship as well as across-the-board cooperation with China is the top priority for Vietnam.
Vietnam supports and is willing to actively participate in the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, he said, adding that Vietnam will join hands with China to promote their comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.
