NDO/VNA – The friendship between Vietnam and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has developed continuously since the two countries established diplomatic ties more than seven decades ago, heard a meeting in Hanoi on October 22.

The Vietnam-DPRK Friendship Association, part of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO), convened its congress for the 2021-2026 in both online and in-person forms.

Vuong Duy Bien, former Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, was re-elected as President of the association for the tenure.

In his remarks, Bien highlighted contributions made by the Vietnam-DPRK Friendship Association and the DPRK-Vietnam Friendship Association to the bilateral ties.

During the 2021-2026 term, the Vietnam-DPRK Friendship Association aims to step up the communication work to raise public awareness of the traditional friendship, and organise more exchanges in culture, arts, sports and tourism.

Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga, VUFO President, lauded diverse activities carried out by the association, saying it has closely and effectively coordinated with the DPRK Embassy in Hanoi to hold a range of events, helping to tighten the friendship.

Nga expressed her belief that the association will reap more achievements in the time ahead.
