The South African Embassy in Hanoi on April 24 announced its plans to organise the 19th anniversary of the country’s Liberation Day and the 20 th anniversary of Vietnam-South Africa diplomatic ties.

Both anniversaries will be held in Hanoi with art performance shows imbued with a South African twist.

The events are expected to help the two countries intensify cooperation for improved prosperity and development.

Vietnam and South Africa established diplomatic ties in 1993. The two sides experienced hardships of national liberation in the past and now join hands in global economic integration.-VNA
