Bangkok (VNA) – The book “President Ho Chi Minh, the Founder of Modern Vietnam – Thailand Relations,” which tells stories about his stay in Thailand, is set to be published in English in celebration of his 130th birthday (May 19, 1890 – 2020).

The English version of the five-chapter book by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Prachacksha Saisang, former lecturer at Thailand’s Naresuan University will soon be available for readers, providing insights into the late President’s journey to inspire patriotism among the Vietnamese community in Thailand.

It is expected to help the book to reach more readers from all over the world and make them understand better about his life, career and strong sentiment towards Thailand and its people, which was fundamental for the two countries’ strategic partnership.

The Vietnamese and Thai versions, co-authored by Assistant Professor Dr. Truong Thi Hang at Lampang Rajabhat University and Prof. Chuan Petkaew at Suratthani Rajabhat University in Thailand, were published in May last year.

Hang said she hopes this book will remind Vietnamese young people and readers worldwide about national heroes who devoted their lives to create a better world for everybody today.

Works about the relations between President Ho Chi Minh and Southeast Asian leaders and people lay a crucial foundation for the great friendship between Vietnam and the regional nations, she added./.
