New Delhi, Sep 26 (IANS) The Embassy of Vietnam in Delhi announced a logo design competition on Monday to celebrate the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between India and Vietnam. The winner of the contest will get air tickets to Vietnam.

“There will be many events organised by both Vietnam and India to celebrate this anniversary next year. So, we need a good and meaningful logo to be used in these events as well as in the publications and website of the Embassy in 2017,” Vietnamese Ambassador to India Ton Sinh Thanh said.

“We are looking forward to receiving a large number of entries, which showcase the close relationship between Vietnam and India over the past 45 years and the promising future of the newly established Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between our two countries as well as the high level of creativeness of the participating designers,” Thanh added.

The Ambassador said that among 12 agreements signed during the visit, there was a Protocol between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam and the Ministry of External Affairs of India on activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Diplomatic relations between India and Vietnam began on January 7, 1972.

Highlighting the importance of relationship with India, Thanh said that India is the third country after China and Russia with whom Vietnam has a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. After the visit of Indian Prime Minister Modi, the relation between the two nations was at its highest level.

Commenting on the Uri terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir he said, “we support India in its struggle against terrorism.”

Cyber security was a major threat to Vietnam and recently the communication network of two of our airports was broken down. Vietnam needs India’s support in the cyber security domain, Thanh said.

India and Vietnam signed a defence co-operation agreement which included the area of cyber security.

India has given a credit line of $500 million to Vietnam and during Modi’s visit, a contract of $100 million was signed between Indian engineering major Larsen and Toubro and Vietnamese Border Guard for supply of two High speed Patrol boats.

The contract is expected to complete in two years, informed the Vietnamese Ambassador.
