He welcomed the ambassadors upon taking office in Vietnam and asked them to convey his regards and best greetings to the leaders of their countries.

Despite facing a lot of difficulties and challenges over recent years, Vietnam has gained remarkable achievements in all fields thanks to its determination and efforts, in addition to the assistance from international friends, especially the effective support and cooperation of the aforementioned nations, he said.

The Vietnamese leader hoped that the ambassadors would quickly grasp the situation in Vietnam and serve as important bridges to connect Vietnam with their countries.
