A Vietnamese Embassy's delegation who was on the way from Nubra Valley to Leh City, the capital of Ladakh, on Sep. 18 had assisted a broken 7-seat car.
According to information from Vietnamese embassy in Delhi, on their way during a working trip, a delegation of Vietnamese embassy had stopped to provide assistance to the 7-seat Hyundai Creta car broken down in the middle of the road.
At around 5000m above sea level, the road was as narrow as it was dangerous with the steep mountainous terrains on one side and deep chasmic edge on the other.
Immediately, officials got off the vehicle, mobilized everyone to push the broken down vehicle onto the rescue vehicle. When the Vietnamese officials step in, it also creates motivation for other drivers to rush in to help. Although the vehicle was very heavy and difficult to push up, the group's efforts were ultimately successful.
Ambassador Pham Sanh Chau got into the trunk of the tow truck to guide the driver to adjust the wheels to the right groove. Other officers help to separate lanes, ensure that the rescue vehicle leaves the scene safely and others get back on the road safely. The Vietnamese delegation continued the journey to Leh.
During the 3-day working trip to Leh which aims to promote economic cooperation and tourism between Vietnam and this territory, Ambassador Pham Sanh Chau on Sep.19 paid a courtesy visit to Radha Krishna Mathur, Lieutenant Governor of the union territory of Ladakh.

At the meeting, Mathur shared good memories of his visit to Vietnam in 2015 when he was the leader of the Ministry of National Defense. He expressed his delight at the good development of relations between the two countries over the past time, especially congratulated the Vietnamese embassy for the inauguration of President Ho Chi Minh bust in New Delhi; looking forward to promoting economic and trade relations people flow between Ladakh and localities of Vietnam.
Although newly separated from the former State of Jammu and Kashmir on October 3, 2019, Ladakh is a separate Union Territory with great potential for handicrafts and tourism. Although many Vietnamese people have come here for spiritual tourism and discovery, Thailand is still the country that contributes the most tourists to Ladakh.
Mathur expressed his hope that the number of Vietnamese tourists coming to this locality to explore and visit Buddhist monasteries will increase sharply when the Covid-19 pandemic ends, now that Delhi and Hanoi have direct flights. In addition, it took just over 1 hour to fly from Delhi to Leh with 17 flights/day.
Ambassador Pham Sanh Chau said that the two countries' relations are developing very strongly on a solid traditional foundation, especially in defense cooperation in accordance with the interests of the two countries. Chau also expressed his wish to promote economic exchanges and people-to-people exchanges between localities of Vietnam and Ladakh.
The diplomat suggested that with his personal influence, Mathur would contribute his voice to persuade the Indian Government to soon grant a license to export Covid-19 vaccines to Vietnam.
The governor said that in the next few months, India will soon lift the ban on the vaccines export after vaccinating the vast majority of people over the age of 18.
