Accordingly, Ambassador Dang Minh Khoi awarded Certificates of Merit to an individual who has made positive contributions in successfully campaigning for Vietnam to be elected as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2023-2025 term, and three individuals for their outstanding achievements in promoting and implementing the construction of the statue of President Ho Chi Minh in Saint Petersburg city, Russian Federation.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ambassador Khoi said that this is the recognition of the leaders of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, domestic departments and branches for the individuals’ contributions, as well as the recognition of the contributions of the Embassy's collective efforts in implementing the general work of the representative agency.

According to the Ambassador, Vietnam is elected to a specialized agency of the United Nations thanks to the Vietnamese Embassy's active advocacy with Russia and concurrent countries in the area.

He said that the construction of the statue of President Ho Chi Minh has been implemented over the past five years with the participation of many officials of the representative agency, some of whom have returned home.

The statue of President Ho Chi Minh was inaugurated in Saint Petersburg on June 30, 2023, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the day he first arrived in Petrograd, today Saint Petersburg (June 30, 1923-June 30, 2023). This is an outstanding event in the Vietnam – Russia relationship in 2023./.
