Kirsan Ilyumzhinov is a great friend of Vietnam and has always helped this country. The last time he came to Hanoi was in July 2019, and at the same time he gave a detailed interview to a journalist of the Vietnamese BBC service.

It was headlined as "Vietnam is always a special place for me." Ilyumzhinov said:  “my first official visit, as FIDE President, was to Vietnam. One of the main reasons is that I have many Vietnamese friends with whom I studied at MGIMO (Moscow State Institute of International Relations), and I often played chess with them. They told me that chess is quite developed and many people play it in Vietnam.
In 1995, I concluded that Vietnam has a huge potential for the development of not only chess and sports, but also the economy and culture. The reason is that Vietnam has a very long history and preserves traditions and culture. These are the roots of the Vietnamese people. The deeper the roots, the better the tree, and this will definitely bear fruit in the future."
