The President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO), Vu Xuan Hong, has presented the insignia “For Peace and Friendship amongst Nations” to Yonhap News Agency correspondent in Vietnam Kim Sun-han from the Republic of Korea.

On addressing the ceremony in Hanoi on Feb. 22, President Hong highlighted Kim Sun-han’s contributions to promoting friendship, mutual understanding and cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK.

He also praised Kim Sun-han’s articles and the book he published on Vietnam in 2007 which helps people in the RoK get a better understanding of Vietnam and its investors realise that Vietnam is a “golden opportunity” for their investments.

He also helped Samsung Electronics Vietnam to organise classes on the RoK’s culture and customs for Vietnamese brides before emigrating to the RoK. He also called on the JS Foundation, founded by star RoK footballer Park Ji-sung, to donate 90,000 USD to the Vietnam Football Federation to nurture young and talented Vietnamese footballers.

The VUFO head said he hopes that Kim Sun-han will continue to develop stronger ties between the two peoples.

Kim Sun-han said that he wishes Vietnam and the RoK will enhance investment cooperation and put into action several agreements already agreed between both countries.-VNA
