Hanoi (VNA) –
Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong offered incense to commemorate late President Ho Chi Minh at House 67 in the presidential historical relic site in Hanoi on September 2.

The activity took place on the occasion of celebrating the 72nd anniversary of Vietnam’s August Revolution Day (August 19), National Day (September 2, 1945), and 48th death anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh (September 2, 1969).

The Party chief expressed his deep gratitude to the late President for devoting his whole life to the national independence and liberty as well as people’s happiness.

While meeting with the relic site’s staff, the Party leader told them to continue introducing both domestic and foreign visitors about the life and revolutionary career of President Ho Chi Minh.

House 67 in the Presidential Palace is where President Ho Chi Minh lived, worked and passed away. It provides a venue for the Political Bureau’s meetings during the fiercest years of the Vietnam war.

On September 2, 1945, President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence, declaring to the world the foundation of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Over the past 72 years, the country has gained significant achievements in various fields such as economics, trade, defense-security, external affairs, and international integration.-VNA
