These are Mr. Lam's first overseas trips since he was elected the President of Vietnam by the National Assembly last month. The visits reflect Vietnam’s crucial message of attaching the utmost importance to the Vietnam-Laos great friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation, as well as the Vietnam-Cambodia good neighborliness, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation and long-term sustainability.

They will mark a new stage of development in Vietnam - Laos and Vietnam - Cambodia relations based on equality, mutual benefit, effective cooperation and respect for each other's interests, contributing to consolidating strategic trust, deepening relations with both countries, and enhancing solidarity among Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and within the ASEAN bloc.
