He expressed his desire to receive support from the Vietnam Fatherland Front, as well as from relevant Vietnamese agencies, to accomplish his mission, so as to promote bilateral relations.


For his part, Nhan welcomed Hong’s new term in Vietnam and expected the ambassador will work hard to foster Vietnam-China relations in the interest of the two peoples and contributing to peace, stability and prosperity in the region.

The Party, State and people of Vietnam attach great importance to the ties of friendship, neighbourliness and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, he said.

While in Hanoi, Nhan and Hong visited the Ho Chi Minh Relic Complex where President Ho Chi Minh received many senior Chinese Party and State leaders such as Liu Shaoqi and Premier Zhou Enlai during his lifetime.

Ambassador Hong also visited House 67 (H.67) where Chinese doctors wholeheartedly took care of President Ho’s health when he was ill.

“This is a chance for me to know more about the revolutionary cause and life of President Ho Chi Minh – a great leader of Vietnamese people,” he said.
