Especially, both countries have still maintained good relations, with a bilateral trade volume equivalent to that in 2019, despite the serious challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Minh affirmed that Viet Nam has always attached importance to further strengthening the strategic cooperative partnership with the Northeast Asian nation.

The Order of Diplomatic Service Merit is awarded by the President of South Korea for "outstanding meritorious services in the interest of enhancing national prestige and promoting amity with allies." It is a relatively rare honor, is usually awarded to a handful of people every year, and is one of the highest civilian awards of South Korea, according to Korean Legislation Research Institute.
