He expressed his hope that on the basis of the great friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Laos, the two embassies will maintain exchanges in 2024 and increase coordination and mutual assistance in task performance, thereby helping enhance the two countries’ relations with Australia and exploring the possibility of the three countries’ cooperation in areas of shared interest.

Appreciating the greetings and congratulating Tam on his appointment as Vietnamese Ambassador to Australia, Ambassador Manivanh shared the outcomes of Lao Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone’s visit to Vietnam earlier this year, which had boosted bilateral ties.

The diplomat said he hopes that the Vietnam - Laos relations as well as cooperation between the two embassies will stay strong and fruitful.
