Vietnamese Ambassador to France Nguyen Thiep was presented the French State’s National Order of the Legion of Honour, Class Commandeur, at a ceremony held at the French foreign ministry’s headquarters on April 9.

Addressing the event, Bertrand Lortholary, Asia-Oceania Director of the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, congratulated Ambassador Thiep and said that by presenting the noble award, France has recognised and honoured the ambassador’s efforts during his working term in the country.

Ambassador Thiep recalled wishes of the two countries’ leaders to strengthen and expand bilateral relations in various areas.

He highlighted the development of the Viet Nam-France strategic partnership over the past three years, marked by a number of visits by senior leaders of the two countries, especially visits to France by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong in March 2018 and then National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan in March 2019, and by a visit to Viet Nam by then Prime Minister Édouard Philippe in November 2018.

These visits have helped enhance trust and deepen bilateral cooperation in a number of fields, Thiep stressed.
