Upon arrival at Noi Bai International Airport, the Mongolian delegation received a warm welcome from several esteemed individuals including Le Khanh Hai, Chairman of the State President Office, Tran Sy Thanh, Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee, Nguyen Minh Vu, Permanent Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Doan Khanh Tam, the Vietnamese Ambassador to Mongolia, among other notable figures.
The excursion occurs within the framework of commemorating the 70th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two nations in 2024.
On November 17, 1954, Mongolia and Vietnam forged diplomatic relations, making Mongolia one of the earliest nations to establish formal ties with Vietnam. Notably, Vietnam was also the first country in Southeast Asia that Mongolia established diplomatic relations with.
The friendship between Vietnam and Mongolia has flourished and grown significantly over the past nearly 70 years. Despite modest bilateral trade, there has been notable progress in recent years. According to statistics, the trade volume has increased from $81 million in 2021 to $85 million in the previous year, and for the first seven months of this year, it reached $65 million. This demonstrates the continuous strengthening and robust development of the Vietnam-Mongolia relationship.
The two nations have consistently provided each other with unwavering support in international forums, and have also fostered a regular exchange of visits between their respective high-ranking leaders.
The visit of the Mongolian leader is anticipated to play a significant role in enhancing the bond, unity, and all-encompassing collaboration between the two nations.
