Vietnam's Communist Party chief will visit North Korea to boost ties between two of the world's few remaining communist countries, state media reported Wednesday. Party chief Nong Duc Manh will pay the "official goodwill" visit to North Korea in the near future after an invitation from "comrade Kim Jong Il," the Communist Party newspaper Nhan Dan (People) said, referring to the North's leader. No other details were given. A Foreign Ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said the two sides are finalizing details of the trip, which is expected to follow a visit to Vietnam later this month by North Korean Prime Minister Kim Yong Il.
