NDO – The Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt held a photo exhibition in Cairo on November 30 to introduce the landscape, culture and people of Vietnam to Egypt public and international friends.

The event, as part of the activities celebrating the 57th anniversary of Vietnam-Egypt diplomatic ties (September 1, 1963-2020), drew representatives from countries’ diplomatic corps in Egypt, alongside many Egyptian and international experts, cultural workers, and journalists.

Visitors to the exhibition all expressed their positive impressions and feelings when admiring the unique and artistic photos of natural landscapes and people in regions across Vietnam, as well as the important political events marking the growth of bilateral relations over recent years.

Hailing Egypt as a country with long-standing culture and many historical and cultural relics, Cong voiced his hopes that through cultural events, photos, traditional dances and art performances, Egyptians would gain a better understanding of Vietnam.
