Phuong also took this occasion to extend congratulations on the 118th Independence Day of Panama and wish the two countries’ friendship sustainable development.

For his part, Panamanian Ambassador Eligio Salas III said as children are the future of a country, the embassy wishes to use the Independence Day as an occasion to help ease hardships facing the children and to thank Vietnam for supporting the Panamanian people during the struggle for independence in the past./.
