Accompanying the US Ambassador were Prof. Dr. Pham Quang Minh - Former Principal of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities and the university's students.
Ambassador Daniel J. Kritenbrink said: "The Temple of Literature is one of my absolute favorite places in Hanoi. I love it because it is so beautiful and peaceful. The architecture is stunning and historically and culturally meaningful as well. I learned a lot about Chu Van An here today and I learned that he is one of 4 people in Vietnam recognized by UNESCO. I feel particularly inspired today by Vietnam's teachers, Vietnam's students, Vietnam's long and rich history and tradition. I wish all of Vietnam's teachers a happy Teacher's Day!"
