The history of Soviet/Russian-Lao relations, as well as our country's relations with Vietnam and Cambodia, is a vivid testimony to the great role that the Soviet Union played in the struggle of the peoples of Indochina for their independence, and the opportunities that the traditions of friendship and cooperation offer in the current new conditions, which are not yet fully realized.
