President, PM offer condolences on Vietnam president’s death

ISLAMABAD: President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday extended condolences on the death of Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang.
In a tweet, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said: “President & Prime Minister of Pakistan have extended heartfelt condolences on sad and untimely demise of President of Vietnam, Mr. Tran Dai Quang today. People and government of Pakistan are with the people of Vietnam at this hour of grief.”
The Vietnamese president, 61, died in a military hospital in Hanoi on Friday from a “serious illness despite efforts by domestic and international doctors and professors.”
Vietnam has no paramount ruler and is officially led by the president, prime minister and Communist Party chief. Experts say the presidency is largely ceremonial.
Quang was appointed to the role in April, 2016. Before that, he had served as Minister of Public Security, an organization with broad powers and a remit that includes intelligence gathering and thwarting domestic and foreign threats to the party.
