Azerbaijan’s First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva has visited the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The Temple of Literature built in 1070, is one of several temples in Vietnam which are dedicated to Confucius, sages and scholars. The temple is located to the south of Thang Long Citadel.

Mehriban Aliyeva listened to Vietnamese national music performed by students of Imperial Academy.

Later, a dinner has been given in honor of Azerbaijan’s First Lady on behalf of spouse of Vietnamese President Mai Thi Hanh.

Mehriban Aliyeva accompanies President Ilham Aliyev on his official visit to Vietnam.

Azerbaijani-Vietnam cooperation is fast developing. Azerbaijan opened its embassy in Vietnam last December, while the Azerbaijan-Vietnam inter-parliamentary friendship group was established in Hanoi in November 2013. The group includes six members of Vietnam’s National Assembly.

In October 2013, Vietnam simplified the visa regime for Azerbaijani citizens, making it possible for Azerbaijani citizens to obtain a visa upon arrival at Vietnam’s airports. According to the new rules, Azerbaijani citizens only need to provide the relevant documents given by the Vietnamese travel agencies regarding their trip in order to get a visa.
