The Vietnamese delegation has taken part in an array of important activities at the 18th World Festival of Youth and Students in Ecuador.

At a forum called “Vietnam youth in the national process of renewal, construction and defence”, deputy head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Tran Dac Loi gave a brief of Vietnam’s history, renewal process and national construction.

He stressed that the country has been realising its international integration policy and willing to be a friend and a trustful partner with all countries around the globe.

Representatives from India, Russia, Ukraine, Peru and Venezuela praised achievements recorded by Vietnamese people, saying that Vietnam is an example of national defence and construction to other countries.

At the international anti-imperialism tribunal co-chaired by Vietnam, a documentary film about Dioxin/Agent Orange consequences was screened, touching participants deeply.

A Vietnamese representative talked about the lingering impacts of more than 80 million litres of herbicide that the US army sprayed onto the country during the war time, and called for all nations to fight for the termination of mass destruction weapons, including nuclear, chemical and biological ones.

Earlier, Vietnam also joined other delegations at symposiums about poverty alleviation, cultural preservation and development, and the role of the youth in the current time.-VNA
