Ambassador Ruben Omar Orozco Burgos expressed his gratitude to Dr. Phạm Lan Dung and the Academy for their time. He announced that El Salvador officially inaugurated its embassy in Hanoi, which is also the first embassy of El Salvador in Southeast Asia, on February 15, 2023, attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of El Salvador, Alexandra Hill Tinoco. This event is not only a significant milestone in the diplomatic relations between El Salvador and Viet Nam but also demonstrates El Salvador’s regard for Vietnam’s role in the region. The Ambassador expressed his desire for the DAV to consider signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Diplomatic Academy of El Salvador to strengthen relations in education, training, research, and other areas of mutual interest.
