The Vietnam-Argentina traditional friendship and the strong development of bilateral cooperation over recent year were highlighted at an event marking the 41st anniversary diplomatic ties between the two countries in Buenos Aires on October 25.

The event was co-organised by the Argentinean parliamentarians’ friendship group with Vietnam (GPAV), the Argentina-Vietnam Cultural Institute (ICAV) and the Vietnamese Embassy in Argentina.

Speakers at the event emphasised that parliamentary and people-to-people diplomacy and cultural exchange have contributed greatly to enhancing the mutual understanding and friendship and cooperation between the two nations.

On the occasion, more than 30 primary pupils from Santisimo Sacramento School drew their own pictures on Vietnam-Argentina relations. These pictures will be presented to Trong Diem School in Ha Long City, northern Quang Ninh province, during the upcoming visit to Vietnam by ICAV Chairperson Poldi Sosa.

Additionally, a talk on Vietnam’s achievements in the renewal process and its geo-strategic position was also co-held by the Vietnamese Embassy in coordination with ICAV and AsiaTV on October 23 as part of activities to mark the day in the country./.
