Speaking at the event, Korean Ambassador to Viet Nam Park Noh-wan said the Government of Korea spoke highly of Minh’s contributions to advancing Viet Nam-RoK relations over the past 10 years as the Foreign Minister of Viet Nam.

The diplomat congratulated Viet Nam on successful containment of the Covid-19 and positive economic growth this year, thereby helping to maintain stable life for local residents as well as for Korean citizens and investors living and working in Viet Nam.

Minh expressed sincere thanks to the RoK President and Government for offering him the noble award.

He highlighted that the Viet Nam-RoK cooperation has grown quickly across fields, from politics, economy to people-to-people exchanges over the past nearly three decades since the two countries established diplomatic ties.

Especially, both countries have still maintained good relations, with bilateral trade volume equivalent to that in 2019, despite the serious challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Minh affirmed that Viet Nam has always attached importance to further strengthening the strategic cooperative partnership with the Northeast Asian nation./.
