Bachelet, who is in Vietnam for the celebration of the 52nd anniversary of the bilateral diplomatic ties (March 25, 1971-2023), said Vietnam and Chile share extremely close-knit ties, and that today and future generations of the two countries share the responsibility of maintaining and further enhancing those relations.
She went on to say that she admires the Vietnamese people for their undaunted spirit during the struggle for national independence as well as for development achievements.
Particularly, President Ho Chi Minh is a symbol in the hearts of peace-loving people around the world. Therefore, Chile will provide maximum support for implementing the “Vietnam - Chile Memory” project in Cerro Navia and rehabilitating the Ho Chi Minh Park there, the former President noted, pledging continued support for relations between the two countries.
On this occasion, the Binh Duong Department of Construction and the Cerro Navia municipality signed a memorandum of understanding on support for the rehabilitation of the Ho Chi Minh Park.
The Ho Chi Minh park on Herminda de la Victoria street, was built in 1969, constituting solidarity and support by Chilean people to Vietnamese people’s struggle for national liberation.
Over the past 50 years, Ho Chi Minh Park has become a living proof of the friendship between the people of Vietnam and Chile.
On the afternoon of March 30, in Ben Cat town (Binh Duong), Bachelet also reunited with her close friend, former State President Nguyen Minh Triet. This is the first reunion between the two friends after the last meeting in Hanoi in 2017, on the occasion of Vietnam's APEC Summit.
During her stay in Vietnam, Bachelet also visited the central province of Nghe An to foster cooperation between localities of the two countries and people-to-people exchange activities.
Previous, the former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet was received by President Vo Van Thuong, and Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son, and attended a commemorative ceremony organized by the Viet Nam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) in Hanoi.
