Viet Nam’s Traditional Diplomacy
In the country’s millennia-old history of national construction and defense, Viet Nam’s diplomacy has gradually been cultivated and fostered, combining national identities and mankind's quintessence to form a distinctive style of diplomacy.
Viet Nam’s traditional diplomacy is rooted in the Vietnamese people’s indomitable spirit for independence and freedom, desire for peace and friendship, fidelity and deep humanism. The national history of undaunted struggles against foreign aggression has offered valuable lessons and induced humanism into Viet Nam’s diplomacy crystallized in the spirit of “confronting barbarity with justice and fighting truculence with humanity.”
