On behalf of the President of France, Bertrand Lortholary, Asia-Oceania Director of the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs awarded the noble order to Vietnamese Ambassador to France Nguyen Thiep.
Legion of Honour, officially National Order of the Legion of Honour, French Ordre National de la Légion d’honneur, premier order of the French republic, created by Napoleon Bonaparte, then first consul, on May 19, 1802, as a general military and civil order of merit conferred without regard to birth or religion provided that anyone admitted swears to uphold liberty and equality.
Addressing the event, Lortholary, congratulated Ambassador Thiep and said that by presenting the noble award, France has recognised and honoured the ambassador’s efforts during his working term in the country.
Ambassador Thiep recalled wishes of the two countries’ leaders to strengthen and expand bilateral relations in various areas.
He highlighted the development of the Vietnam-France strategic partnership over the past three years, marked by a number of visits by senior leaders of the two countries, especially visits to France by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong in March 2018 and then National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan in March 2019, and by a visit to Vietnam by then Prime Minister Édouard Philippe in November 2018.
These visits have helped enhance trust and deepen bilateral cooperation in a number of fields, Thiep stressed.
