UNESCO's honor of President Ho Chi Minh affirms the soundness of his ideals and revolutionary path that the entire Party, army and people of Vietnam are steadfastly following to make his wish come true, which is bringing independence to the nation, bringing a free, prosperous and truly happy life to everyone.
It is a great source of encouragement to each Party member to continue studying and following the late President’s thoughts, morals and lifestyle. It is also a strong evidence to refute wrongful allegations and distortions.
The legacy will forever spread and elevate Vietnamese cultural values while affirming the Party's sound policy and guidelines in the cause of national construction, defense and development, Ngoc added.- (VNA/VLLF)
