General Giap expressed his thanks to the Party General Secretary and other visiting leaders, and his pleasure about the country’s recent socio-economic achievements.
He said he believed all officials and soldiers would further develop the tradition of “soldiers of Uncle Ho” and would continue practicing, studying and self-improving to better accomplish all tasks assigned by the Party, State and people.
