Berlin (VNA) – A delegation from the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany has paid a floral tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at his monument site in Moritzburg town near Dresden city, the capital city of Saxony state, on the occasion of the late leader’s 129th birthday.

Along with the embassy’s staff, their families, and representatives from the Vietnamese community in Germany, the delegation also included Le Duc Duong who had welcomed President Ho Chi Minh during his visit to the German Democratic Republic in 1957.
