In his remarks, Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son recalled the seventh Francophone Summit in Ha Noi 25 years ago, the first of its kind in Asia-Pacific, which adopted the Charter of La Francophonie and the first OIF Secretary General.

The summit demonstrates Viet Nam’s sound foreign policy of being a trustworthy friend, an active and responsible member of the international community, and together strive for peace, national democracy, democracy, development cooperation and social progress, he continued.
Viet Nam drew experience from hosting the summit to successfully organize many events of major forums like the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the minister stressed .
Apart from creating an impulse for equal, mutually beneficial cooperation between Vietnam and member countries of the Francophone community, the summit helped to promote cultural values associated with French and boost the development of the language in Vietnam.
