Participants heard about the developments at the Thanh Thuy battlefield in Vi Xuyen district, Ha Tuyen province (now Ha Giang).

The fight of Vietnamese soldiers and people against enemy forces across the entire northern border was a milestone in the cause of national defence to safeguard the country’s independence and sovereignty.
