Women’s unions of Vietnam, DPRK bolster cooperation
Posted: Nov 29,2018
President of the Vietnam Women’s Union Nguyen Thi Thu Ha held talks on November 5 with her counterpart from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Jang Chun-sil

President of the Vietnam Women’s Union Nguyen Thi Thu Ha held talks on November 5 with her counterpart from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Jang Chun-sil on women’s activities and traditional relations.

At the meeting in Hanoi, Ha expressed her appreciation of the DPRK’s support for Vietnam in wartime, while also lauding the achievements of the Socialist Women’s Union of the DPRK over the years.

Vietnamese women have held important roles in the nation’s political system as well as its socio-economic development, she noted, adding that they have arranged and participated in many forums focusing on women in socialist countries. 

Underlining the long-standing traditional ties, the host voiced her hope that cooperation between the two women’s organisations will be strengthened in the coming time, especially as they are set to increase experience sharing in women’s activities, the education of political ideology, along with other activities in staff organisation and support for women, and more.

For her part, Jang Chun-sil said the Socialist Women’s Union of the DPRK – formerly known the Korean Democratic Women’s Union – is the only mass organisation for women in the DPRK. It was founded by President Kim Il-sung in November 18, 1945.

She informed her host that the union has increased exchanges and solidarity with women and female organisations in many countries worldwide, which has helped to foster mutual national understanding, friendship, cooperation, and peacekeeping.

The DPRK guest also expressed her hope that the two sides will continue to exchange information on each other’s activities and on campaigns for women, as well as bolster bilateral cooperation in many spheres, including tourism.–VNA

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
