Hanoi (VNA) Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Hong Xiaoyong has been awarded the insigniaFor Peace and Friendship among Nations”, the most notable reward of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO), for his contributions to the two countries’ relations.

Speaking at the event on February 2, VUFO Vice Chairman Don Tuan Phong thanked the ambassador and his embassy for supporting activities of the VUFO and the Vietnam-China Friendship Association.

Hong’s assistance has helped promote the friendship and cooperation between the two countries and their people, he affirmed.

Expressing his honour to receive such a noble reward, Hong said that the nearly four-year working tenure in Vietnam was an important period in his diplomatic career, helping him to understand more about the bilateral relations.

As the two countries have entered a new development phase, they should step up people-to-people exchange activities, he suggested.

He confirmed that in any positions, he will work to foster the friendship and cooperation between the Chinese and Vietnamese people.-VNA
