On the afternoon of Nov. 26, 2013, the second China-Vietnam Youth Gala was held in Nanning, Guangxi. Chinese President Xi Jinping and Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang sent congratulatory letters respectively.

In his congratulatory letter, Xi Jinping pointed out that the two countries are linked by mountains and rivers, and the two peoples have deep feelings towards each other. The "comradely and brotherly" traditional friendship between China and Vietnam built and carefully cultivated by Chairman Mao Zedong, President Ho Chi Minh, and other leaders of the older generation has been deeply rooted in the heart of the two peoples. Developing bilateral relations in accordance with the 16-word policy of long-term stability, facing the future, good-neighborliness and friendship, and all-round cooperation, as well as the four-point spirit of being good neighbors, friends, comrades and partners, and passing on bilateral friendship from generation to generation conform to the fundamental interests of the two countries and the two peoples, and are also the common aspirations of the two peoples.

Xi Jinping stressed that youths are the future of a country, and the hope of a nation. The future and hope of the long-term friendship between the two peoples rely on the youths of both countries. Taking the relay baton of China-Vietnam friendship and passing it on is an obligatory mission and responsibility of youths on both sides. We hope youths of the two countries strive to be the inheritor of the bilateral traditional friendship and the new force for friendly cooperation, join hands and work together to help China-Vietnam friendship continue blossom and yield fruits and to make positive contributions to the world peace and development!

In his congratulatory letter, Truong Tan Sang said that strengthening and cultivating the China-Vietnam friendly relations conforms to the common interests of the two nations, involves the bright future of the youths on both sides, and is conducive to the peace, stability and prosperity of the region and the world. Contemporary youths should continue to do their bit for the bilateral friendship to blossom, brimming with ever fresh fragrance.

Member of the Political Bureau of CPC Central Committee and Vice President Li Yuanchao, member of Politburo of the Communist Party of Vietnam and Chairman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan, attended the gala and made speeches respectively.
