HANOI - President Xi Jinping, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, arrived in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi on Sunday for a state visit to the southeast Asian country.

It is Xi's second visit to Vietnam as China's head of state and top CPC leader.

Before flying to Hanoi, Xi concluded a busy two-day stay in Vietnam's central city of Da Nang, where he attended the 25th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting.

During his stay in Hanoi, Xi will hold talks with General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong and meet with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang and the Chairperson of the National Assembly of Vietnam, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.

The visit, which comes on the heels of the 19th CPC National Congress, is also reciprocal for previous visits to China by Trong and Quang earlier this year.

Trong made a four-day official visit to China in January, while Quang paid a state visit to China in May and attended the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing.

"The leaders of the two countries will have in-depth talks on promoting the relations between the two countries under the new circumstances, "said Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Hong Xiaoyong.

In a signed article published on Nov 9 on Nhan Dan, the official newspaper of the CPV, Xi said China and Vietnam need, more than ever, to work in joint efforts in their pursuit of dreams of national strength and prosperity.
