Hailing that China and Vietnam are good neighbors and good comrades, Li, chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, said the two sides had proactively implemented the consensus reached by leaders of the two parties and the two countries and pushed cooperation in various fields for new progress since the visit to Vietnam last November by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
