The Foreign Minister highly appreciated and thanked the Nagasaki administration as well as Governor Oishi for always paying attention to promoting the development of friend and cooperation between Nagasaki and Vietnam, especially between the Japanese prefecture and Quang Nam province, the place that still preserves many vestiges of the exchange relations between the two countries more than 400 years ago.
