HÀ NỘI – Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng praised ambassadors and heads of Việt Nam’s overseas representative agencies who, he said, will fulfill tasks assigned by the Party, State and people.
He met with the diplomats, whose term runs from 2016 to 2019, at the Party Central Committee’s headquarters in Hà Nội on Saturday.
The event was also attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Phạm Bình Minh and Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Hoàng Bình Quân.
The ambassadors and heads of representative agencies expressed their honour to take the positions. They promised to do their utmost to fulfill their tasks, reinforcing Việt Nam’s friendship with other countries and international organisations.
General Secretary Trọng said to successfully perform their duties, the diplomats have to thoroughly grasp Party and State guidelines and viewpoints. They must have an in-depth understanding of the countries they will work in, so as to be ready for any circumstance.
They must also continually self-improve to be deserving of representing the country, people and culture of Việt Nam, the leader added.— VNS
