He also asked the team to make good preparations for cultural exchanges in line with defense cooperation relations, contributing to promoting the beautiful image of the Vietnam People’s Army in the international arena.

The Deputy Director also asked them to closely work with each other and keep good health to obtain the best possible results in competition.

Under the framework of Army Games 2020, the Vietnamese delegation will take part in the Ethnic cultural Festival “Friendship without borders.” It has two main categories: An art performance contest and Friendship House Display Space themed “Vietnam – Peace – Cooperation – Development”.

The first category includes 11 special performances which have been carefully prepared, showcasing national cultural identities and the friendship between Vietnam and Russia.

Meanwhile, the Friendship House Display Space will showcase typical documents, images, exhibits introducing Vietnamese culture, and traditions of the Vietnam People’s Army and defense cooperation between Vietnam and other countries, especially the Vietnam-Russia relations.

Also during a tour of Vietnam’s booth at the Display Space, foreigners will have a chance to learn how to paint Dong Ho folk paintings and receive gifts.
