Update: Jun 22, 2017
An exhibition, named ‘Viet Nam - Landscape and people’, opened on June 20, at the Photography center Association of Russia, in Moscow, Russia.

Ambassador and Special Envoy of the Prime Minister on UNESCO affairs, Pham Sanh Chau, and First Secretary of the Viet Nam Embassy in Russia, Nguyen Thi Minh Hien, represented Viet Nam at the ceremony. The ambassador, on behalf of the Viet Nam Ministry of Foreign Affairs, expressed their sincere thanks to the organizing board of the exhibition.

The board of management of the Photography centre Association, members of the Russia-Viet Nam Friendship Association and the Association of Russian veterans who fought for Viet Nam, together with many other Russian friends who hold a love of Viet Nam, represented Russia at the event. 

The event also brought together Russian students majoring in Viet Nam study and Vietnamese students studying in the European country.

Director of the Photography center Association, Valery Nikiforov, said that the exhibition shows the viewers the development of Viet Nam over recent years, in terms of politics, economics and culture, as well as introducing Viet Nam's beautiful landscape and culture to international friends.

The photos at the event depict the in-depth history of the two countries' cherished, long-standing relations, especially the insight of the two peoples' friendship, which is not easy to find anywhere else in the world.

Over 130 pictures in the show bring to our overseas friends a broad view of Viet Nam's integration journey, affirming the position of Viet Nam within the international arena, including milestones such as the signing ceremony of the common announcement of Viet Nam-Russia strategic partnership in 2010 and the signing of Viet Nam - EAEU Free Trade Agreement in 2015.

The photos also feature the potential of the Vietnamese market and the army, alongside iconic images of the country's natural landscape and people.

The exhibition is held on a significant occasion, as the state visit of President Tran Dai Quang to Russia will take place next week.

The exhibition will last until the end of July 2.
