Seoul (VNA) – The AJU newspaper of the Republic of Korea (RoK) recently posted an article by Prof. Ahn Kyung-hwan from the Chosun University, who affirmed that late President Ho Chi Minh wrote a new chapter of history for Vietnam.

In his article, the professor said that President Ho Chi Minh is respected by the Vietnamese people as the greatest hero in the country’s history, adding that on the occasion of his 100th birth anniversary in 1990, UNESCO recognised him as a hero of national liberation and great man of culture of Vietnam.

The Korean scholar described the late leader of Vietnam as the embodiment of patriotism who devoted his whole life to the struggle for national independence and freedom and the people’s happiness.

He also highlighted “Nhat ky trong tu” (Prison Diary), a collection of poems Ho Chi Minh created while he was imprisoned by the Chiang Kai-shek administration in China, as a masterpiece of Vietnam’s literature.

Besides, the scholar also reserved part of his article for the childhood, family and hometown of Ho Chi Minh, noting that the knowledge of the late President is critically important to the promotion of cooperation between the RoK and Vietnam./.
