Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on May 25 received Prince Alfred of Liechtenstein who is here to prepare for a cultural programme that will see Nobel Laureates coming to Vietnam in November.

The prince is visiting Vietnam as chairman of the International Peace Foundation's Advisory Board.

Dung thanked the prince for his support to Vietnamese people in their past struggle for liberation and briefed the guest on the national external affairs policy.

He welcomed the prince’s effort to bring Vietnamese images to the international community, particularly in his preparation for a series of the 4th "Bridges-Dialogues towards a Culture of Peace".

The programme, organised by the International Peace Foundation in Vietnam from November this year to April next year, will bring along Nobel Laureates to give speeches and lectures at conferences and meetings with Vietnamese scientists, lecturers and students.

The prince said another aim of his visit is to promote the cooperative ties between Vietnam and Liechtenstein.

He also said he will always support cooperation activities with Vietnam, particularly on education and training.-VNA
