Yoga enthusiasts participate in an event to celebrate 3rd International Day of Yoga in Wenzhou, China on June 18, 2017.

Other eight localities also responded to the Yoga Day, including Ho Chi Minh City, Vinh Phuc, Vinh city (Nghe An), Da Nang city, Nha Trang city (KHanh Hoa province), Long An province, Dong Nai province and Can Tho City. Here we see a lot of people from different countries. This is not a political or economic movement, he said.

"This is something which is only for the benefit of all humanity at both an individual level and a macro level, because ultimately all societies in all countries are made up of human beings", he said. In an unanimous decision, the United Nations declared June 21 as International Yoga Day on December 11, 2014. Virginia Governor Chris Van Hollen sent his citation on the occasion in recognition of "the spiritual value that yoga and meditation offer, and with appreciation and gratitude for the organising committee's outstanding efforts to encourage, peace, harmony and consciousness".

Yoga has been a key element contributing to the friendship and solidarity between Vietnam and India, he said.

Led by Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale, a large number people performed various asanas.

The main event will be held at the Great Wall on June 20.

Can Tho and India have worked together in various projects in agriculture, information technology, and human resources training, he said, wishing for more joint cultural exchanges between the sides in the future. From over 1,500 last year when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in city, just 500 participants are expected to participate this year.

Meanwhile, Wenzhou today became the sixth city in China's eastern region to host the celebrations jointly organised by Consulate General of India, Shanghai along with Wenzhou Municipal People's Government.

In Japan, the Indian Embassy celebrated the Yoga Day at the Taimei Elementary School in Tokyo.

Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj will also be a part of the Yoga session beginning at 11 a.m.at the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Modi further emphasized that Yoga has come forth as a gift from India to the world, at a time when disruptive forces are tearing the world apart, adding that Yoga helps to unite the body, mind, soul and now is similarly uniting the world.
