Hanoi (VNA) – The Party and State have always paid attention to affairs relating to war invalids, martyrs and those who rendered services to the nation, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong affirmed in Hanoi on July 23.

The Party leader met with representatives of former revolutionists, Heroic Vietnamese Mothers, armed forces, war invalids and families of martyrs on the occasion of War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27).

He highlighted guidelines, policies and laws issued by the Party and the State towards revolution contributors, saying the list of beneficiaries has been expanded.

All-level Party committees, authorities and localities have also rolled out various measures, plans and movements to mobilise resources in order to put these policies into place, he continued.

Trong praised the former revolutionists, Heroic Vietnamese Mothers and war veterans for their contributions to the community and the country's industrialisation, modernisation and international integration.   

He urged all-level Party committees, authorities and agencies to perfect policies and laws towards the group, and asked localities, collectives and individuals to play a role in this regard.
