The diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the DPRK, established on January 31, 1950, by President Ho Chi Minh and Chairman Kim Il Sung, have grown over the past time.

Two of the highlights in the bilateral relations are the Vietnam-DPRK Friendship Kindergarten in Hanoi and the DPRK-Vietnam Friendship Kyongsang Kindergarten in Pyongyang, with the former entirely built and equipped by the DPRK government.

Vietnam has also provided aid for the DPRK, with 100 tonnes of rice in 1995, 13,000 tonnes in 1997, 22,700 tonnes of rice as well as five tonnes of raw rubber and US$50,000 in aid from 2000-12, and then $70,000 in 2016 for flood victims.

In the 1960-70s, the DPRK helped Vietnam by training hundreds of students, and education agencies of the two countries are currently working towards an education cooperation agreement.

Over the past few years, the two countries have held rotational policy discussions at the deputy foreign ministerial level and meetings of the Inter-Governmental Committee for economic, scientific, and technical cooperation.

Many important deals have been inked, including agreements on cultural cooperation, scientific-technical cooperation, trade and navigation, healthcare, and civil air transport cooperation.
