Vietnam party chief, president hosts key meeting after sick leave

The Vietnam's top official appeared in good condition at the meeting where he called for fiercer fighting against corruption, a campaign he has spearheaded since 2017.

"We have to continue the fight against corruption and negativity with the spirit of determination and perseverance, we have to raise the spirit of solidarity and unity at all levels and branches," Trong said at the meeting which was joined by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, and Tran Quoc Vuong, Chairman of the Party Central Committee's Inspection Commission.

Vietnam's foreign ministry spokesperson said last month that Trong had some health issues due to heavy workload and weather conditions, and would return to work soon.

He was absent at the funeral of former President Le Duc Anh early this month, though he headed the state funeral organizing committee.

The Tuesday meeting also discussed the key events in May, including the 10th plenum of the 12th Party Central Committee, meetings of the Politburo, the party's decision-making body, and the Party Central Committee Secretariat, and the 7th session of the 14th National Assembly, the latter scheduled for May 20.
