After five months in the making, it was completed in time to mark the occasion of the 70th founding anniversary of the LPA.

He said the film features the nature of the revolutionary army and proves a vivid manifestation of cooperation between the two armies, contributing to tightening solidarity and special friendship between the two parties, states, and people.

Saisamone Salapseng, head of the Department of Propaganda and Training, said the film will help strengthen the LPA in political thought education, as well as further tighten the tradition of solidarity between the two nations and armies.

He pledged to use the film effectively in raising the Lao army’s and general public awareness about political theory, as well as use the gifts from Luong Cuong towards further studies and research. –VNA
