Lao, Cuban youth unions forge closer ties

The Lao People’s Revolutionary Youth Union and the Young Communists’ Union of Cuba (UJC-Union De Jovenes Comunistas De Cuba) have deepened their friendship through a new cooperation agreement.
The agreement on exchange and cooperation between the two parties was signed in Vientiane yesterday between the General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Youth Union, Mr Alounxai Sounnalath, and the First Secretary of the National Committee of the UJC of Cuba, Ms Susely Morfa Gonzalez.
The agreement was signed during a visit by the Committee of the UJC of Cuba to Laos on May 23-24 and will be in force for five years until 2023.
Based on their shared intention to strengthen their historic bonds of friendship, the two youth groups agreed to continue to deepen the friendship, cooperation, dialogue, communication, reciprocal learning and political trust between them.
This would be achieved through the exchange of information and documents of mutual interest concerning youth, on the basis of the regulations in force in both countries, the agreement stated.
 The two parties would also continue to develop educational activities in order to educate the children, adolescents and youth of both countries, directed towards the strengthening of the traditional friendship between Laos and Cuba.
The agreement called for the sharing of experiences in matters dealing with youth policies, promotion of the deep ties of friendship existing between the two groups, and the sharing of experiences relevant to education and the participation of young people in socialist society.
The two youth unions will also arrange exchanges between officials and specialists on matters regarding youth, through seminars, lectures and training courses. They will provide the necessary logistical and financial conditions and also exchange messages on historical dates that are significant to both countries.
The two parties also agreed to support each other at international and multilateral forums whenever common positions must be established. Coordination and mutual support would be maintained within the framework of the World Federation of Democratic Youth.
