NDO/VNA – A Palestinian cultural – cuisine day was held for the first time in Hanoi on November 12, on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (November 29).

Organised by the Palestinian embassy in Hanoi, the event featured a series of activities introducing Palestine’s history, culture and arts, such as a photo exhibition, a folk dance performance staged by Palestinian students, a book debut, and a display of traditional Palestinian dishes.

Palestinian Ambassador to Vietnam Saadi Salama said that although the friendship between Palestine and Vietnam has dated back many decades, the Vietnamese people still know little about Palestinian culture. Therefore, the embassy held the event with the hope to introduce Vietnamese people and other international friends to Palestine’s rich culture and unique cuisine.

He said that he hopes Vietnamese people will gain more understanding about Middle Eastern cuisine with the six traditional dishes of Palestine introduced at the event, and that they will learn more about the peace-loving Palestinian nation.
