Hanoi (VNA) - Foreign media have highlighted the morality and intelligence of Vietnamese late leader Ho Chi Minh as well as his invaluable ideas, on the occasion of his 130th birthday on May 19.

In a 2,700-word article published on May 19, German daily Junge Welt cited studies and assessments of President Ho Chi Minh by international politicians, historians, and researchers.

The article traced the life and career of the late leader, from his departure to seek national salvation until the founding of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945 and then the adoption of policies for reconstruction and national development.

Cuban and Latin American newspapers also published articles honouring President Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary ideas and career.

Cuban media agencies also ran congratulations from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba to its Vietnamese counterpart on the memorable milestone, emphasising the sincere and unbreakable friendship between the two countries.

The portal of South American TV channel TeleSur has an article on the President’s important position in global history, saying he is remembered as one of the smartest and most effective leaders in the socialist struggle.

Vietnam’s struggle and its heritage relating to President Ho Chi Minh serve as inspiration for countries that have been occupied or suffer from military violence, it said.

Meanwhile, India’s Moderndiplomacy magazine spotlighted his ideas on world peace, saying he always expressed a desire for common interest and loyalty to the nation.

The President was equally concerned with regard to peace in Asia and the world, it said.

The resonance in President Ho Chi Minh’s ideas was primarily aimed at bringing about global peace through anti-colonialism and reducing the influence of imperialist powers so that development and growth could be ushered in among newly-independent nations, it noted.

In letters the President sent to various leaders, he always strived for global peace and development, it added./.
