President Truong Tan Sang has presented the title of Hero of the People’s Armed Forces to the military delegations of the Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam.

At the presentation ceremony in Hanoi on April 20, the delegates reviewed glorious memories in their diplomatic struggle for the deployment of the Paris Accord, which, they said, created a decisive moment in Vietnam ’s total victory.

From the time they were founded on January 28, 1973 until completing their mission on April 30, 1975, the mentioned military delegations resolutely uncovered the US troop’s plots and condemned their activities to destroy the Paris Accord, contributing to forcing the US troops to withdraw from southern Vietnam .

President Sang said despite the two delegations’ short operational time, the founding of the two delegations was a strategically significant event and a clear-sighted policy of Vietnam’s revolution, marking a historical victory in the resistance against the US invaders in the diplomatic field and a valuable lesson for the Vietnamese Party in the art of guiding the war and the diplomatic struggle.

The President suggested the continual upholding of the two delegations’ valuable experiences in the diplomatic struggle in implementing the Paris Accord in the current complex situation.-VNA
