Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on August 16 offered incense at House No 67 in the President Ho Chi Minh relic site in Hanoi on the occasion of the late leader’s 45th commemorative anniversary (September 2).

House No 67 is where the late President spent the last days of his life 45 years ago.

The PM expressed his gratitude to President Ho Chi Minh, who bought fame to the nation and made great contributions to the struggle for national liberation and unification.

PM Dung also praised efforts of officials and staff working in the relic complex in preserving objects related to the late leader.

He said he hopes the staff will work harder to help not only Vietnamese people but also international visitors get a deeper insight into the late President’s life and revolutionary career, thus understanding more about the Party and State’s glorious revolutionary cause.

Built and completed in 1967, flat-roofed House No 67 also provided a venue for meetings of the Party’s Politburo 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./.
