Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in the Republic of Turkey. I thank you for your kind interest in Viet Nam and it is my expectation that the website-given informational resources might get you closer to our country.
Deep in my mind, Turkey used to appear to be a country of wonders with amazing landscapes, ancient architectures and extraordinary geological structures. This is also the motherland of famous writer Aziz Nesin whose "Laugh or Lament" book is overwhelmingly favored by generations of Vietnamese readers. Notwithstanding, I am indeed impressed by the outstanding developments that Turkey has attained in the past years and thus turned itself into a major economic and commercial center in the region and all over the world.
Though being far apart geographically, Viet Nam and Turkey have enjoyed a remarkable cooperation and friendship over the past 40 years. As a result, Turkey is now seen as one of the most important partners of Viet Nam in this region. This is evidenced by the fast expansion of bilateral relations in many areas including particularly the political, economic, and cultural and people diplomacy cooperation which have brought the two countries ever closer together. It is therefore understandable that one top priority during my mission in the Republic of Turkey will be to further accelerate the fruitful bilateral cooperation in line with our two nations’ advantages and potentials.
I sincerely hope that this website can provide you some helpful information about Viet Nam, on the relations between our two countries and on other issues such as in consular affairs and developments of cultural, education, tourism cooperation.
