HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam always bears in mind the assistance provided by Chinese advisors and experts during its anti-French resistance war, President Truong Tan Sang said yesterday.

Sang was receiving a delegation of the families of former Chinese experts on a visit to Viet Nam.

Their visit came at a time when the country is gearing up for the 60th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu victory.

Sang said he hoped both sides would facilitate the exchange of visits to educate young generations on the friendship between the two countries.

Vice Chairman of the China-Viet Nam Friendship Association, Qi Jianguo, thanked the Vietnamese ministries and localities for offering them tours of cultural and historic sites.

Qi told his host that the delegation would discuss tourism with Vietnamese agencies concerned.

The same day, President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations, Vu Xuan Hong, welcomed the Chinese guests.

Qi said both associations should organise more activities to bolster people-to-people friendship, particularly the collection of documents and artifacts related to significant events in Vietnamese and Chinese history. — VNS
