Gia Lai (VNA) - A high-ranking delegation from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) on January 29 offered incense to Vietnamese volunteer soldiers, who died when supporting the Cambodian people to fight the Pol Pot genocidal regime, at the martyrs’ cemetery in Duc Co district, the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai.

The event was organised as part of activities to mark 39 years since the fall of the brutal regime in Cambodia.
