A Mongolian language book on the career of late Vietnamese President Ho Chi Minh was unveiled in Mongolia’s capital city of Ulaanbaatar on September 9.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Mongolia Phan Dang Duong appreciated efforts by the book’s author, Sonomish Dashtsevel, who has spent his entire life researching the land, people and culture of Vietnam.

Sonomish Dashtsevel has translated a number of Vietnamese works of literature into Mongolian, including “Truyen Kieu” (the Tale of Kieu) by Nguyen Du and “Nhat ky trong tu” (Prison Diary) by Ho Chi Minh.

Duong said the life and career of Ho Chi Minh are closely attached to Vietnam’s glorious revolution, the Vietnamese nation and peace lovers around the globe. The leader is not only the Hero of National Liberation and an Eminent Personality in the Culture of the world but also a close friend of the Mongolian people. He and the late Mongolian leader Yu. Tsedenbal laid the foundation for the friendship between the two countries.

The diplomat thanked Dashtsevel and scientists of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences for publishing the book, which he said will help the Mongolian people, especially the younger generation, gain an insight into the life of the late Vietnamese President.

Meanwhile, local scholars said the book is both a valuable work and a friendship bridge linking the two countries’ peoples, thus helping bolster the amity and traditional cooperation between Vietnam and Mongolia.-VNA
