The Russian official spoke highly of the achievements during Ambassador Manh’s term, emphasising the maintaining of multi-faceted cooperation despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

For his part, the Vietnamese Ambassador gave thanks for the support of the leaders of Russian state agencies, organisations, partners and friends that helped him to fulfil his duty successfully.
