In his opening speech at the conference, Vietnamese Charge d’Affaires a.i. to Egypt Nguyen Hong Son briefed participants on the stages of the Vietnamese revolution, including the event when President Ho Chi Minh delivered the Declaration of Independence 69 years ago, to establish the Democratic Republic of Vietnam - the first people’s democratic state in Southeast Asia, which is now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam .

Son, one of the five key speakers, highlighted the major points of Ho Chi Minh’s diplomacy, which is built upon several principles such as steadfastness in goal, a flexible strategy, good understanding of the other side, establishing alliance to isolate the main rival, and pursuing the policy of national independence in connection with international solidarity and cooperation.

The President of the Organisation of Egypt and the World, Magdy Morgan and key speakers from China, Iraq and Morocco praised the late Vietnamese leader for his great contributions to Vietnam’s revolutionary cause and the national liberation movement of oppressed nations in the world.-VNA
