The diplomat emphasised that the visit is takes place as the two countries are celebrating the 35th anniversary of their bilateral diplomatic relations (December 18, 1989-2024) and 17 years of comprehensive partnership (20
07-2024). In particular, Vietnam-Venezuela relations have continued to be promoted and strengthened on all three pillars, including Party, State, and people diplomacy.

My acknowledged that this will be an important occasion for the two sides to deepen the exchange of ideas on major issues in bilateral relations as well as international and regional situation of common interest, thereby further strengthening political trust, promoting cooperation mechanisms.

The ambassador revealed that the two countries also plan to sign a number of new cooperation agreements in such areas as oil and gas, telecommunications, agriculture, and construction.

According to him, the relationship between the two Parties is a bright spot and a favourable political basis to promote multifaceted relations between Vietnam and Venezuela in the coming time.

Recently, the two countries have supported each other at the UN Human Rights Council for the 2023-2025 term. They have been coordinating closely and effectively at international fo
rums that the two countries are members.

Ambassador My said that the two countries will co-organise a number of events this year such as “Vietnamese Day in Venezuela”, “Venezuelan Cultural Week in Vietnam”, and “Rice Festival in Venezuela”.

In particular, 2024 also marks the 60th anniversary of the Nguyen Van Troi operation (October, 1964-2024), an event that entered the history of relations between the two Parties and countries, a symbol of solidarity and support by leftist and progressive forces in Venezuela in particular and progressive forces in Latin America in general to the national liberation and reunification of the Vietnamese people./.
