President of the Argentina-Vietnam Cultural Exchange Institute Ms. Poldi Sosa Schmidt said that revolutionary ethics were a fulcrum for Ho Chi Minh to overcome physical and spiritual difficulties, and achieve his nation’s independence.
Mr. Pascual Albanese, deputy president of the Institute for Strategic Studies of Argentina, said that today Vietnam is carrying out Ho Chi Minh’s will in building a socialist society and achieving success in economic and social development.
