NDO - Seventy years of friendly relations between Vietnam and Russia came under the spotlight at a workshop and photo exhibition on July 3 in the central city of Da Nang.

The event was jointly held by the Da Nang Union of Friendship Organisations, the Vietnam-Russian Friendship Association in Da Nang and the Russian Consulate General in Da Nang.

In 1950 the Soviet Union was one of the first countries in the world to recognise and establish diplomatic relations with Vietnam, demonstrating its solidarity with the Vietnamese people in their struggle for national independence.

Chairman of the Da Nang Union of Friendship Organisations Nguyen Ngoc Binh stated that the workshop and photo exhibition sought to look back at the time-honoured friendship and close cooperation between the two countries over the past 70 years.

He added that other activities will take place to further develop Vietnam-Russia ties as an invaluable asset that the two countries need to cherish.

For his part, Russian Consul General Plam Andrei Yurievich affirmed that Vietnam is one of Russia’s most important strategic partners in Asia and that deepening ties with Vietnam is one of the main orientations in its foreign policies.

The diplomat added that Russia is promoting Vietnam as a popular destination for Russian citizens.
