Vietnamese Embassy in India celebrates 45 years of diplomatic ties

The Embassy of Vietnam in India held a ceremony on Wednesday to mark 45 years of Vietnam – India diplomatic ties and to welcome the Lunar New Year festival.

The event was attended by India’s Minister of State for External Affairs Mobashar Jawed Akbar and representatives of India’s ministries, sectors and parliament. Vietnamese Ambassador to India Ton Sinh Thanh said that since the establishment of Vietnam-India diplomatic ties on January 7, 1972, the two nations’ relationship has seen strong development. India has always been a great and trustworthy friend to Vietnam, Thanh said. Vietnam and India entered a strategic partnership in 2007, and ever since, the two countries have expanded cooperation in politics, national defense, economics, science, technology, culture, and education. The two nations elevated their strategic partnership to a comprehensive strategic partnership during the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Vietnam last year.
