On Sunday 4 February, Egypt's Minister of Culture Ines Abdel-Dayem met with Vietnam's Ambassador to Egypt De Hwang Long at the Ministry of Culture headquarters in Zamalek to discuss ways of enhancing cultural cooperation between the two countries.

They were joined in the meeting by Fu Tian, deputy head of the Vietnamese diplomatic mission in Cairo, and Tran Tam An, the first secretary of the embassy.

Hisham Mourad, head of the Foreign Cultural Relations Department at the Ministry of Culture, was also in attendance.

Abdel-Dayem and De Hwang Long also discussed a plan to celebrate 55 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries, and the possible organizing of cultural weeks in their respective countries.

The pair also recognized Egypt's role in documenting the visit of the late Vietnamese President Ho Chi Minh to Cairo during the 1960s and his meetings with the late President Gamal Abdel-Nasser.
