With the desire of bringing the image of the beloved leader of the Vietnamese people closer to the Turkish people, the Vietnamese Embassy in Turkey has actively coordinated with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Vietnam Film Institute, President Ho Chi Minh relic site at the Presidential Palace, Center for Asia-Pacific Studies of Turkey and related agencies to translate, add Turkish subtitles and completely build a DVD film about President Ho Chi Minh.

After presenting a book about President Ho Chi Minh's life and career in Turkish to the Library of the Presidential Palace of Turkey in 2020, the Vietnamese Embassy this year continues to give the DVD of the film about President Ho Chi Minh and continuing to implement the project "a Vietnamese hero of national liberation and a great man of culture in foreign countries”.

Speaking at the event, Ambassador Tran Quang Tuyen introduced the documentary film about President Ho Chi Minh as well as Vietnam’s cultural features through a number of traditional handicrafts.

The Ambassador believed that these documents would enrich information about Vietnam, help Turkish people and Library readers understand more about the country, people and traditional culture of Vietnam, especially the life and career of President Ho Chi Minh - the beloved leader of the people of Vietnam.

On behalf of the Library of the Presidential Palace, Executive Director Ayhan Tuglu sincerely thanked the Embassy of Vietnam for giving valuable materials and items to the Library.

He said that this is the largest and most modern library in Turkey, currently receiving an average of about 6,000 visitors per day. The library has arranged a separate area called "Vietnam Corner" to display documents, books, publications and artifacts about Vietnam in order to meet the Turkish people’s increasing research needs.

Mr. Ayhan looks forward to continuing to cooperate and receiving a lot of support from the Embassy to enrich the source of material about the country, people, culture of Vietnam in general and President Ho Chi Minh in particular at the Library./.
