Hanoi (VNA) - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has praised three students in the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang for their honesty to give back a sum of 40 million VND (about 1,760 USD) to its owner.

The three students are Do Thanh Bang, a 10th grader of Tran Van Bay High School, Tran Thanh Moi and Le Nhi Khang, residing in the province’s Thanh Tri district. On February 19, they discovered a lost wallet with the 40 million VND inside and reported to local police.

In his letter of commendation sent on February 24, the PM lauded the students’ honesty while voicing his hope that they will continue to study hard and become exemplary citizens and future masters of the country.

He instructed the provincial People’s Committee and education sector to reward the students and create optimal conditions for their study. - VNA
