The French Consulate General in HCMC is hosting a photo exhibition on meetings between Vietnamese and French leaders to mark the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-France diplomatic ties and five years since the two countries set up strategic partnership.

The large-size photos are attached on the surrounding walls of the French Consul General’s residence on Le Duan Street in HCMC’s District 1 for public viewing. All of them have the official logo of the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-France diplomatic relations.

Featuring meetings between Vietnamese and French leaders over the past 45 years, the exhibition mirrors the steadfast friendship between the two countries.

Speaking to the Daily, French Consul General in HCMC Vincent Floreani said all of the meetings have played important roles in maintaining and promoting the relations between Vietnam and France. However, he was impressed the most by the meeting between former Vietnamese President Le Duc Anh and former French President François Mitterrand in Hanoi in February 1993 because this was the first visit to Vietnam by a leader of a Western country after 1975.

The diplomat also highlighted the meeting between General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong and French President Emmanuel Macron in March 2018, which summarized the Vietnam-France relations in nearly half a decade and marked five years since the two countries became strategic partners.

“The greatest achievement of Vietnam and France over the years is that our relationships have always been going up, covering all levels, from the governments to localities and citizens, and all sectors, from economic development to politics, science-technology, healthcare and education,” he said.

According to the French Consul General, in addition to this photo exhibition, there will be a lot of other activities to mark the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-France diplomatic relations in the coming time. He hoped there will be more meetings between leaders of the two countries in the future, contributing to deepening their friendship.
