Hanoi (VNA) –
The Vietnam Embassy in Algeria organised a meeting to mark the 86th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) on February 3.

Opening the ceremony, Ambassador Vu The Hiep said that under more than eight decades of the CPV leadership, Vietnam has gradually overcome poverty and undeveloped conditions to consolidate a more significant position regionally and internationally.

The diplomat summarised the 12th National Party Congress, with Nguyen Phu Trong re-elected as General Secretary.

The same day, meetings and celebrations also took place in Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany.

The birth of the CPV on February 3, 1930, was an important historical event and a significant turning point in the history of the Vietnamese revolution, marking a milestone in the country’s development.

Under the Party’s leadership, the Vietnamese people successfully carried out the August Revolution in 1945 and the 1975 Spring Offensive, entering a new chapter of development.-VNA
