The Federal Union of Vietnamese in Germany (BVD) and the Germany-Vietnam Friendship Association have jointly organised a conference aimed to review the glorious feats of arms of Vietnamese soldiers and people involved in the Dien Bien Phu campaign.

Highlighting the meaning and values of the victory, both BVD Deputy Chairman Vu Quoc Nam and Siegfried Sommer, President of the association, stressed that the May 7 conference in Berlin helped German friends better their understanding of the victory, enabling them to continue aiding Vietnam in national construction and protection.

As a milestone in the history of the Vietnamese military in the struggle against French colonialists, the victory was a bright example for oppressed nations facing their own struggles for national liberation, other delegates asserted.

The participants had a chance to enjoy films exploring the victory and some video clips of activities held in the northwestern province of Dien Bien to mark the 60th anniversary of the event.

The same day, the overseas Vietnamese community in Cairo, Egypt held a meeting to mark the victory.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Dao Thanh Chung reiterated that the triumph shocked the world and led to France signing the 1954 Geneva Accord and the end of French colonialism in Vietnam, bringing freedom to the three Indochinese countries.

The ambassador called on Vietnamese students and staff currently working in Egypt to spare no effort to further boosting the friendship and partnership between the two countries.-VNA
