Phu Trong said that the fact Choummaly picked Vietnam as the first country to visit after being ratified in his post shows the special nature of relations between both countries.
Trong, who is also LaosÂ� President, began his official visit to Vietnam on Monday, aimed at strengthening an alliance that dates from the independence wars, and with an ambitious economic and trade future.
Both leaders demanded the efficient implementation of the cooperation agreements signed for the 2011-2015 period, as well as the collaboration strategy until 2020.
