The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Ha Noi, Viet Nam celebrated the 73 Independence Day of Sri Lanka at the Embassy premises, in a charm and dignified manner. Ambassador Prasanna Gamage hoisted the national flag. The national anthem was sung and two minutes silence was observed to pay respect to the war heroes and those who have sacrificed their lives for the sake of the nation.
Due to recently renewed COVID – 19 restrictions in Viet Nam, members of the diplomatic corps, Viet Nam government officials, other dignitaries and members of the Sri Lankan community could not attend the ceremony this year.
The leaders of the Viet Nam government extended their warm greetings and best wishes to their Sri Lankan counterparts on the occasion of the 73 Independence Day. A newspaper supplement titled “Sri Lanka: A land so unique in its magical aura” was also published in the English daily “Viet Nam News” to commemorate the event.
