The ambassador also thanked the Ministry of Affairs and the Algerian community abroad for working effectively with the embassy to collect historical materials about General Vo Nguyen Giap.
Ambassador Vinh highlighted the biography, career and contributions of General Giap to Vietnam’s revolution and liberation movements across the world. The Ambassador believed that General Vo Nguyen Giap was a great source of motivation for Algeria’s revolution and an integral factor in fostering the relationship between Vietnam and Algeria.
