Vietnam has organised various activities in June to mark the 110th anniversary of President Ho leaving the country to travel around the world in search of ways to secure national salvation (June 5, 1911-2021), he noted.

The ambassador thanked the administration of Mexico City for arranging a special place for the statue, expressing the solidarity and friendship between Vietnam and Mexico.
