Hanoi (VNA) – The Politburo on February 19 held a meeting with former leaders of the Party, State and Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) on the occasion of the Lunar New Year.

Speaking at the meeting, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong briefed the participants on the country's major events last year, notably the 13th National Party Congress, as well as achievements in social welfare, anti-corruption, and Party and political system building.

He attributed the outcomes to great efforts of the entire Party, people, army and the political system, and lauded valuable contributions of former Party and State leaders.
