Nearly 150 photos, documents and objects highlighting instances of international support for Vietnam during its revolutionary wars during 1954-1975 will be displayed at an exhibition in Hanoi.

Hosted by the Vietnam National Museum of History from April 24, the exhibition is part of activities to celebrate the 40th anniversary of southern liberation and national reunification (April 30).

The exhibition also aims to reflect the assistance from international organisations, conferences and courts of justice in the period.

On the occasion, the Museum will also introduce visitors to posters issued by the former Soviet Union, Cuba, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Italy and Germany supporting Vietnam in the country’s national reunification struggle before 1975.

The exhibition will feature movements launched around the world to back Vietnam and contribute to its political, diplomatic and defence successes, bringing about victory on April 30, 1975 which reunified the country.

It is also to raise public awareness of protecting territorial sovereignty.-VNA
