Cementing the friendly relation between Bangladesh and Vietnam
After the dissolution of the USSR (Soviet Union) an anti communist phobia prevailed all over the world. Notwithstanding the negative attitude towards the communist world, People's Republic of China, Vietnam, North Korea and Cuba could be able to retain their communist character and philosophy. Other than China and Vietnam, Korea and Cuba have created many disputes and controversies but China and Vietnam have been working silently and proceeding towards massive development. China is a big country having a gigantic economy. With the tremendous effort China has reached the peak of industrial, commercial and infrastructural development. China with its unfathomable economy is now challenging the world even the biggest economy of USA. With an isolated atmosphere China confined herself in her own domain. There was a whispering in the world that China is sleeping. With translation of her plan into China with her massive economy emerged as an economic tiger and have started looking outside.
China has blinded the world with her wonderful 'One belt one route' initiative. Most of the countries of the globe have welcomed the majestic venture and expressed their intention to be the participant to this venture.
Linking Asia, Europe and Africa this initiative has become a talk of the globe. Pakistan has become an active participant in this venture. The Mega Project of Gwador deep-sea port with $ 60 bn has become a wonder of the world.
The Highway built by China from Gwador to Zing Ziang has diminished the road from 20 days to 2 days only. Pakistan is going to be an economic tiger to challenge any economy whatsoever. Democratic Republic of Vietnam is undoubtedly a participant of the 'One belt one route' initiative.
After driving away the US force from Vietnam under the leadership of uncle Ho Chi Min Vietnam confined herself in her own national development. With silent working for long time Vietnam has awaken and started exposing herself to the outside world. By this time Vietnam has proved that Vietnamese people are not poor. This stage they have reached not by taking any help from other county it is absolutely by their own effort.
After the recognition of Bangladesh by Vietnam a very good friendly relation between Bangladesh and Vietnam prevailed till today. Cementing the friendly relation and the spirit of development in different sectors were the central point of the friendly relation.

Vietnam and Myanmar are the two ASEAN Countries. Myanmar has created a humanitarian problem for Bangladesh by driving 1 million of her Rohingya citizens towards Bangladesh.
This is a very gigantic problem for Bangladesh. The UNO and world communities have come forward to assist Bangladesh on this issue. We expect Vietnam with all logistic and diplomatic support will stand by us.
Vietnam achieved independence by a long bloody war under the heroic leadership of Ho Chi Min. We have also achieved independence by a guerrilla warfare following the footprints of the Vietcong guerillas. We are the two brothers-in-war. As a result our friendship will last long as war heroes. Bangladesh will accord hero's welcome to Vtetnam President. Long live Bangladesh-Vietnam Friendship.
