At the meeting, the Party leader described the ambassadors and consul generals as being bridges of friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and foreign countries, serving national building and defence.

He said the representative offices must reflect the image of Vietnam, thus contributing to promoting the Vietnamese culture, land and people abroad and motivating foreign countries to cooperate with Vietnam.

In reply, the diplomats promised to make all-out efforts in order to complete their assigned tasks and accelerate the implementation of cooperation agreements that Vietnam has signed, helping to propel the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and other countries and partners.

They pledged to make outstanding performance in protecting Vietnamese overseas, national sovereignty and the country’s interests, while contributing to peace, solidarity, cooperation and development in the region and the world at large.
