He asked the diplomats to closely follow the Party and State’s foreign policy of multilateralisation and diversification of external relations, active and proactive international integration, and being a reliable friend and partner as well as a responsible member of the international community.

The Government leader also said the diplomats should engage in strategic study and forecast work, and research new development models that can be applied in Vietnam.
