SYNOPSIS: A North Korean delegation, headed by Vice-Premier and Foreign Minister, Park Sei-Testu. Paid a four-day official visit to North Vietnam late in October. The delegation comprised members of the North Korean Government and the North Korean Labour Party.
The visiting delegation members were given a rousing welcome as they arrived in Hanoi for the official greeting ceremony.
This film of the ceremony comes from the officially-accredited Japanese News Agency, N.D.N. The North Koreans were one of several Socialist countries invited to send delegations to North Vietnam.
They were welcomed at a special rally by the Mayor of Hanoi, Chang Xui Hun, who later presented his country's national banner to the visiting delegation.
In reply, the North Korean leader encouraged the North Vietnamese people in their struggle against what he termed 'United States Imperialism' and promised to help and support them "in the name of the Democratic Republic of Korea".
The North Koreans presented their national banner to the North Vietnamese. Later both countries issued a joint communique in which North Korea promised increased economic and military aid to North Vietnam.
