– The embassies of Vietnam and Laos in the US have recently organised their annual friendship get-together in Washington DC.

The exchange took place at the private residence of Lao Ambassador to the US Mai Sayavong on July 2.

Both Vietnamese Ambassador to the US Pham Quang Vinh and his Lao counterpart stressed the significance of the exchange, particularly when two countries celebrate the 55th relations anniversary (September 5) and 40 years of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Friendship and Cooperation Treaty (July 18).

They spoke highly of the embassies’ cooperation in exchanging information, working with the host country’s administration and joining the network of ASEAN member states’ embassies in the US.
