At the reception, Deputy Foreign Minister Pham Quang Vinh expressed his delight over the positive development of the traditional friendship and comprehensive strategic partnership between two countries, notably the official visit to Russia by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Viet Nam Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong in September.

The nations will organise the Viet Nam Year in Russia and the Russia Year in Viet Nam for 2019-2020 to mark both the 25th anniversary of the signing of a treaty on basic principles for the Viet Nam-Russia friendship and the 70 years of diplomatic ties, he noted.

The Deputy FM spoke highly of contributions of the Rossotrudnichestvo to promoting Russian culture, language, education, and science in Viet Nam, along with enhancing people-to-people exchange and the humanitarian cooperation of both countries, bolstering mutual understanding and bilateral relations.

He voiced his hope that the Russian agency will actively participate in the organisation of the Viet Nam Year in Russia and the Russia Year in Viet Nam, as well as provide support for collaboration in education-training, culture, and science between Viet Nam and Russia, and the nations’ localities in particular.

On the occasion, Mr. Vinh presented a certificate of merit signed by Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Binh Minh to the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Ha Noi.

In turn, Eleonora Mitrofanova pledged to bolster the activities of the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in the time to come which, she said, will deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership of the two nations.

Mitrofanova is paying a visit to Viet Nam on the occasion of the 15th founding anniversary of the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Ha Noi.
