Lang Son (VNA) – The Vietnam-Russia Friendship Association has held many activities in various fields since the start of this year and become a bridge for cooperation in economy-trade, culture-education and science-technology between the nations, said its President Tran Binh Minh.

Minh made the statement at the association’s meeting which took place in the north province of Lang Son on July 28.

The association’s portal was launched in February, promptly proving information and updates on significant events and foreign activities of Vietnam and Russia.

The Vietnam-Russia Friendship Association’s activities have also enhanced people-to-people exchanges, contributing to the Vietnam-Russia traditional friendship.

In the coming time, the association is set to arrange visits of Russian delegations to Vietnam while stepping up communication work.

On the occasion, the association presented awards to 38 winners of a writing contest on memories in Russia and the Vietnam-Russia friendship, which was held to celebrate 100 years of the Russian October Revolution. -VNA
