Around 50 international delegates will take part in activities to commemorate 40 years (27/01/1973-27/01/2013) since the signing of the Agreement Concerning Termination of the War and Restoration of Peace in Vietnam (known as Paris Agreement), said Nguyen Thi Hoang Van, Secretary General of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations on January 17.

Among the delegates, 30 representatives from 14 countries and several international organisations directly or indirectly contributed to the success of the agreement, and participated in international movements to support Vietnam’s struggle for national liberation and unification. There are those who are helping Agent Orange/dioxin (AO) victims in Vietnam today.

Delegates will attend a State-level meeting, meet with Party and State leaders, plant trees at Hoa Binh Park and join the exchange programme “Paris Agreement and friends’ heart” in Hanoi.

In Ho Chi Minh City, they will take part in a round-table seminar on the meeting with historical witnesses, and visit the War Remnants Museum and AO victims.-VNA
