Hanoi (VNA) – The “Venezuela Cultural Day in Hanoi” was held on June 21 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Venezuelan Embassy in Vietnam, aiming to introduce the landscape and culture of the South American country.

Opening the event, Venezuelan Ambassador to Vietnam Jorge Rondon Utzcategui expressed hope that the optimistic and eventful nation of Venezuela with numerous beauty spots would be featured through the cultural day.

Vietnamese would also have a chance to see dances, films and handicraft products, as well as flavours and scientific and humanitarian ideas from the Latin American country, he said.

Venezuela, home to seven UNESCO-recognised cultural heritages, boasts a diverse culture integrating into other civilisations on the globe, making it a harmonious, friendly and peace-loving nation, said the diplomat, adding that as many as 52 national-scale festivals are held every year across the country.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Viet Thao, Vice President of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and Chairman of the Vietnam-Venezuela Friendship Association, said that the event is a good chance for Vietnamese people to get deeper understanding of the beautiful Venezuela as well as the unique Latin American culture.

This is also an opportunity for people from both countries to foster their friendship, he added.-VNA
