About 200 photos, objects and materials featuring the 1954 Geneva Conference are on display at an exhibition opened on July 21 in Hanoi.

The exhibition depicts the efforts of the Vietnamese nascent diplomatic sector 60 years ago in the struggle to gain liberation for Vietnamese people.

At the conference, the Geneva Agreement was signed to end the war and restore peace in Indochina, including Vietnam, marking a great success of Vietnam’s diplomacy.

The agreement affirmed Vietnamese people’s desire for peace, national independence, sovereignty, unification and territorial integrity.

The conference left valuable lessons, especially those on considering the national interests as the most important goal and the highest principle in external affairs.

The exhibition will run til late August.-VNA
