Deputy head of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Somphone Sichaleun and Deputy Foreign Minister Phoxay Khaykhamphithoune visited the Vietnamese Embassy in Laos on September 1 to offer congratulations on the 76th anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day (September 2).

The Lao officials affirmed that over the past more than seven decades, under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the Vietnamese people have reaped great, comprehensive and significant achievements in various areas, especially during the national renewal cause, Nhan dan (People) newspaper reported.

According to them, Vietnam has still maintained political stability and high economic growth, with solid national defence and expanded external relations. The role and position of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the country has been increasingly improved on regional and international arena.

Expressing sympathy with Vietnam over difficulties in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic, they expressed their belief that the Vietnamese Party, State and people will soon put it under control.

On the occasion, they thanked the Vietnamese Party, State and people for supporting the Lao counterparts in the past as well as national development at present, especially during the fight against Covid-19 in the country.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Nguyen Ba Hung attributed Vietnam’s achievements over the past 76 years to the Vietnam – Laos fighting alliance and utmost support of the fraternal Lao people.

According to him, the two countries still held high-level visits and offer timely assistance in Covid-19 combat this year.

He also thanked the Lao side for helping the Vietnamese embassy fulfil its assigned task, and wished that the two sides would work closely together to hold important celebrations, especially during Year of Laos – Vietnam Friendship and Solidarity.

Vietnamese embassies in foreign countries have held meetings to observe the 76th National Day of Vietnam, according to the Vietnam News Agency (VNA).

At a get-together held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan on September 1, Ambassador Vu Hong Nam reviewed the country’s history, underlining that from a country severely damaged by wars, it has been turned into one of the most dynamic and attractive economies in Asia.

Regarding the relationship between Vietnam and Japan, the diplomat said that after 48 years of diplomatic relations, the two countries have become the most reliable partners based on mutual understanding, equal cooperation and common interest. Under the leadership of Japanese Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide, Japan-Vietnam relations are developing, he said.

Vietnam’s General Consulate in San Francisco, the US, and the municipal authorities held a ceremony to hoist the Vietnamese flag on September 1 morning to mark the country’s 76th National Day.

Consul General Nguyen Trac Toan spoke highly of the contributions by the local authorities to promoting relations between the two countries, especially the determination to establish the sisterly relationship with Ho Chi Minh City right before the two nations normalised their diplomatic relations.

Mark Chandler, Director of the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of International Trade and Commerce, handed over to Toan San Francisco Mayor London Breed's statement declaring that September 2, 2021 is designated as the US-Vietnam heritage and friendship day in San Francisco.

Brazil is among major partners of Vietnam in Latin America. The countries have helped each other in socio-economic development over the time and closely joined hands at international organisations and multilateral forums.

On the foundation of the Vietnam-Brazil comprehensive partnership, exchanges in culture and education have brought people of the two countries closer, the diplomat said./.

President Ho Chi Minh was a great leader, a national hero who devoted all his life to the national independence and freedom and happiness of the people while tirelessly striving for peace and progress in the world.

His aspiration for independence, freedom and happiness has become a great motivation and strength for the Vietnamese people to overcome all difficulties and challenges.

Currently, the whole Party, military and people are implementing the movement of studying and following the moral example and lifestyle of President Ho Chi Minh.
