Sharing on her visit, Azoulay has hailed Vietnam as a model of effective cooperation with UNESCO and said since Vietnam’s entry to UNESCO in 1976 following its national reunification, both sides have built a solid relationship with various joint scientific projects, most recently two training and research centres for maths and physics that debuted in 2021.
