A delegation from the Nhan dan (People) newspaper, the daily of the Communist Party of Vietnam, participated in the L’Humanite (Humanity) newspaper festival at La Coumeuve park on the northern outskirts of Paris from September 11-13.

Deputy Editor-in-chief Le Quoc Khanh, who led the delegation, said the festival is taking place as there are many activities held in the two countries celebrating the 70th anniversary of Vietnam’s August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2).

He underlined that Vietnam has overcome numerous difficulties and challenges over the past seven decades to build and safeguard the nation while defending national independence and socialism.

After 30 years of “doi moi” (Reform) initiated by the Communist Party of Vietnam, the Vietnamese people have reached remarkable attainments which have increased the country’s role and position in the international arena.

Head of the French Communist Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Lydia Samarbakhsh described the regular attendance of the Nhan dan newspaper to the event as a vivid demonstration of the traditional relations between the two countries’ parties and newspapers.

During the visit, the Nhan Dan newspaper delegation met with leaders of the French Communist Party, the L’Humanite newspaper and international friends.

The delegation also attended a workshop on building world of peace, justice and solidarity.

The annual L’Humanite newspaper festival creates a venue for hundreds of thousands of participants to exchange opinions on political-social and international issues.

The Nhan Dan newspaper’s pavilion, which highlights 70 years of Vietnam’s history and particularly the 30-year reform process, drew many international visitors and French friends.

On the occasion, Deputy Editor-in-Chief Le Quoc Khanh granted insigna for the cause of Nhan Dan newspaper to the Vietnamese Association in France, the Vietnamese Youths in France, the Vietnamese Students Association in France and the Union Catalogue of France.-VNA
