Co-organised by Vietnamese Embassy and the Diplomatic Spouses Association (DSA) in Prague, the event aimed at introducing the Vietnamese culture, people, and hospitality to international friends. It gathered Ambassadors to the Czech Republic of Viet Nam, Japan, and Iraq, and 30 members of the DSA.

Ahmed Zahra, Chairwoman of the DSA and the spouse of the Pakistan Ambassador, said that the tour gave an insight into a dynamic and friendly community.

She said the DSA welcomes the active engagement of the Vietnamese Embassy and expatriates in its post-pandemic activities.

Japanese Ambassador Suzuki Hideo shared his impression of a strong and dynamic Vietnamese community and its diverse cultural characteristics.

Viet Nam and Japan have a fruitful traditional ties and trade-investment partnership, the diplomat noted, hoping the bilateral cooperation will be further sustained and promoted.

Iraqi Ambassador Sundus Albayraqdar said among many amazing things during the trip, he thought Vietnamese food is special and attractive.

Founded in 1997, the DSA has members from diplomatic corps of about 50 countries in the Czech Republic.
