Senior officials of the Party and State on August 15 offered incense to President Ho Chi Minh on the occasion of the 45th death anniversary of the leader.

They paid tribute to the late President at House No 67 in the Presidential Palace complex in Hanoi , where he breathed his last at 9:47 am on September 2, 1969.

Among the well wishers were Politburo member and head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Education and Popularisation Dinh The Huynh, Politburo member and Minister of Public Security General Tran Dai Quang, and Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan.

Many delegations from cities and provinces nationwide also paid tribute to the late President at House No.67

Built and completed in 1967, the flat-roofed house was also the place where the Politburo held many meetings during the fiercest years of the US sabotage war.

It is part of the President Ho Chi Minh relic site, which also encompasses the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and his stilt house. The complex welcomes about 2.5 million visitors every year.-VNA
