- Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam Nadav Eshcar has voiced his belief that Vietnam will successfully and safely hold
the upcoming elections of deputies to the 15th National Assembly and
members of all-level People’s Councils in the face of unpredictable developments
surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an interview with
the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), Eshcar said that given the complex developments of the COVID-19 pandemic,
keeping the election
day safe will be a challenge for Vietnam. Still,
the diplomat voiced his belief that the Vietnamese government has carefully
prepared for the event.
“I think the challenge
for its leadership is how to keep people safe and not affect the fight against
COVID-19,” he said. “I’m certain the country’s leaders have addressed such
matters. I put my trust in the Vietnamese Government.”
added that almost every country around the world has been hit by a new wave of COVID-19.
Only a few, including Israel, have seen progress in fighting the disease thanks
to mass inoculations, he said, while expressing an expectation and belief that Vietnam
will bring the pandemic under control thanks to the Government’s efforts and
the people’s responsiveness.

relations in general and their legislative ties in particular, Eshcar said he is
delighted at seeing growth in bilateral relations over recent times. He voiced
an expectation that this is “just the beginning” and will be further consolidated
in the time to come.
The diplomat spoke of the visit by National Assembly Chairman Vuong
Dinh Hue to Israel in June 2015, when he was Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission,
and said it left a fine impression on bilateral relations.
The ambassador also
mentioned a letter of thanks from Hue to his Israeli counterpart Yariv Levin, who
previously sent him a letter of congratulations
upon his election as Chairman of the National Assembly. Both letters, he said, emphasised the importance of boosting bilateral relations.
He added that the two
countries should increase dialogues between their legislatures. In his capacity as the Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam, he promised to further promote the friendship between the two legislatures as well as the two countries.
“In my task here, I
will do my utmost to promote professional and friendly connections between the
legislatures of both countries,” he said./.
