Speaking at the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK Nguyen Hoang Long recalled the historic moment on September 2, 1945, when President Ho Chi Minh read the declaration of independence, giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, opening up a new chapter in national history.

The Ambassador said that since then, the Vietnamese people have overcome countless difficulties to protect the nation, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, making Vietnam one of the most dynamic economies in the Indo-Pacific, and a country of peace, friendship, cooperation and development which enjoys good relations with other countries and actively contributes to maintaining peace, stability and prosperity in the region and the world.

He emphasized that the Vietnam-UK relationship is at the best ever development stage in all fields, and consolidated through cooperation mechanisms and visits by senior leaders.

For her part, Minister of State in the British Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office Anne-Marie Trevelyan expressed her belief that the bilateral relations will grow further in the coming time.

She affirmed that leaders, businesses and people of the two countries will continue to promote the warm and mutually beneficial friendship between the two countries./.
