Addressing the opening ceremony in Kiev on June 5, Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Anh Tuan said the exhibition aims to introduce the achievements that Vietnam gained in the cause of nation-building and development and promote Vietnam as a dynamic country.
It also highlights milestones in the friendship between Vietnam and Ukraine, he added.
President of the Ukraine-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Group Oksana Yurinets said through the more than 100 photos displayed at the exhibition, Ukrainian visitors have a better understanding about Vietnamese land and people and the sound relations between the two countries.
She said the exhibition, along with the upcoming Vietnam Day event in Lvov on June 21, will help promote bilateral rapport.
