The People’s Committee of northern mountainous Hoa Binh province hosted a workshop on August 7 to discuss ways to preserve a relic site proving the Vietnam-Laos friendship located in the locality.

The relic, located in Cham Mat ward, Hoa Binh city was where political training classes and preparations for the second Congress of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party took place in 1971 and 1972.

It has been recognised as a national relic site for its outstanding historical values related to the Vietnam-Laos relationship.

At the event, the committee urged relevant bodies to plant markers to protect the relic site and erect a stele introducing it.

It is also necessary to collect documents determining the size and architecture of the site while maintaining its original values, the committee stressed.

The workshop, which drew the participation of the Lao envoy to Vietnam and experts, aimed to raise awareness among the younger generations of the traditional friendship and solidarity between Vietnam and Laos during their past struggles for liberation and the current nation building.-VNA
