Update: Nov 13, 2013
A photo exhibition featuring the relationship between Vietnam and Russia was held in the Opera House, Hanoi on the evening of November 12.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Truong Tan Sang attended the event.

Some 55 precious photos taken by reporters from the Vietnam News Agency and ITAR-TASS news agency fully reflect the friendship between the two countries over the last six decades.

Undergoing many historical ups and downs, the two countries’ comprehensive strategic partnership lifted since 2012 has flourished in all fields ranging from politics and economics to culture, education, technology-science and security-national defence.

Along with the development of the two countries’ relationship, the two state news agencies have worked closely together over the last 55 years in exchanging information to timely and vividly reflect political, economic and social activities in each country, contributing to cementing the time-honoured relationship and mutual understanding between the two nations.
