Dien Bien (VNA) – A music gala was held in Dien Bien Phu city, the northern province of Dien Bien on May 6 night, marking the 63rd anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory, which closed French colonial rule in Vietnam.   

The 90-minute performance restaged monumental milestones of the Dien Bien Phu campaign, reminding spectators of great sacrifices made by many war heroes who did their best for the national independence.

The Dien Bien Phu 56-day campaign resounded around the world and its victory saw the role of late President Ho Chi Minh and late General Vo Nguyen Giap, the first Commander-in-Chief of the Vietnam People's Army.

The Dien Bien Phu Victory on May 7, 1954 is considered a glorious “golden milestone” in history of the Vietnamese people’s struggle against foreign aggressors. It marked the complete collapse of old colonialism all over the world, paving the way for the movement to struggle for national liberation in colonial countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. - VNA
