Speaking at the event, Son attributed the significant development of Vietnam-Laos ties and people-to-people exchanges over the past four years to contributions of the Lao Ambassador as well the active and effective support of the Lao Embassy in Vietnam.

He expressed his belief that in any future position, the Lao diplomat will continue making positive contributions to people-to-people diplomatic activities between Laos and Vietnam, thus further deepening the bilateral great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation.

Sengphet, for his part, pledged that when returning home, he will continue with efforts to contribute to and nurture the special and unique relationship between Vietnam and Laos.
