Foreign diplomats keen on learning more about Vietnam

PANO � Hanoi is home to numerous historical sites and tourist attractions that all foreign diplomats like us hope to visit. The friendship spring tours are great opportunities for us to complete our desire. Many foreign ambassadors have shared that when taking part in the Friendship Spring Tour 2019 co-held by the Hanoi Union of Friendship Associations (HAUFO) and the municipal Tourism Department on March 16.

This year's program took 400 delegates to the historical relic site of Trung Temple and Long Viet Resort in Ba Vi district, Hanoi.

Venezuelan Ambassador to Vietnam Jorge Rondon Uzcategui has participated in the program several times. He shared that he had different feelings every time visiting Trung Temple and the tour was so meaningful to foreign diplomats like him.

Meanwhile, Ivan Nesterov, First Secretary at the Russian Embassy in Vietnam held that this was his first experience, which hopefully helped him learn more about the Vietnamese religious culture. He also applauded Vietnam for its successful hosting of international events such as the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders' Week or the second DPRK-US Summit in Hanoi recently.

HAUFO's President Nguyen Lan Huong said that the program is an annual people-to-people external affairs event of HAUFO. It is to popularize historical relic sites, beautiful landscapes and craft villages to foreign diplomats, contributing to enhancing friendship and mutual understanding between international friends and locals, she added.
