Moscow (VNA) – The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV)’s creative application and development of Marxism-Leninism to suit the country’s situation has been introduced at a recent international symposium in Moscow, Russia.

The Vietnamese delegation to the May 11-12 workshop on Karl Marx was led by Nguyen Tuan Phong, deputy head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations.

Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh Thought have become the ideological foundation of the CPV and served as the lodestar for Vietnam’s revolution, the workshop heard.

Representatives from other participating political parties and scientists applauded the leadership role of Marxism to the working class, as well as values of Karl Marx’s ideological heritage.

They underlined the need to employ and develop the Marxism-Leninism in a creative manner to suit the new era and situation in each country, emphasising that Marxism-Leninism has shed light on many present urgent issues in the world.

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation highly valued the active participation of the Vietnamese delegation at the event.

While in Russia, the Vietnamese officials also attended a ceremony marking Marx’s 200th birth anniversary (May 5). -VNA
