An art programme titled “Khat Vong Doan Tu” (An aspiration for reunion) will be held at the Defence Ministry’s Hall in Hanoi on July 27 evening to mark the 68 th War Invalids and Martyrs’ Day.

The programme will be broadcasted live on the Vietnam Television’s VTV1 channel and the Vietnam National Defence Television channel (QPVN).

Major General Tran Van Minh, Director of the Department of Policy under the General Department of Politics of the Vietnam People’s Army, said at a press conference on July 24 in Hanoi that the show is organised by the Steering Committee for the Search and Repatriation of Remains of Fallen Soldiers to pay tribute to war martyrs, invalids and revolutionary contributors.

It will also honour teams, individuals and organisations who have been working tirelessly to search for and repatriate the remains of fallen soldiers.

Many Party and State leaders are expected to attend the event together with Heroic Vietnamese Mothers and war invalids.-VNA
