An exhibition featuring late Lao President Souphanouvong, a close friend of Vietnam, is underway at the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hanoi on the occasion of his 110th birthday.

The exhibition displays nearly 100 photos, documents and items showing the memories of the late leader in Vietnam as well as his life and revolution career.

Born into the royal family, the late leader of Laos had a special role to play in laying the foundation for and nurturing of the relations between Vietnam and Laos.

Together with members of the first generation of Lao leaders, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Vietnamese people in the struggle for national independence and freedom.-VNA
