Dien Bien Phu victory to be spotlighted at int’l seminar

Around 200 domestic and foreign scientists from Russia, the US, France, China, Laos and Vietnam will attend a seminar in Hanoi on May 5 to examine the significance and magnitude of the 1954 Dien Bien Phu victory over French colonialism.

The historic Dien Bien Phu victory – the climax of the 1953-1954 Winter-Spring Strategic Offensive – was the greatest victory recorded by the Vietnam People’s Army and Vietnamese people in their protracted war of resistance against the French colonialists.

The victory is a glorious landmark and forever pride of Vietnamese people. It sent shockwaves reverberating around the world signaling the end of French colonialism while concurrently giving rise to the national liberation movement around the world.

Dr Nguyen Van Nhat, Director of the Vietnam Institute of History, emphasises that the seminar aims to affirm the clear-sighted and wise leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh in selecting the most appropriate war strategy and mobilising forces for the historic campaign.

The May 7, 1954 victory demonstrated the heroic sacrifice and great contribution of armed forces, conscripted labourers and people nationwide, especially those in north-west and liberated zone IV.

It heightened revolutionary vigilance, upheld revolutionary will, and strengthened military potential to be ready to defend national sovereignty and the socialist regime amidst hostile forces’ insidious schemes.

The historic victory helped foster international relations and cooperation in the fields of politics, diplomacy, military, security and economics to raise Vietnam’s prestige on international arena.

The seminar will be held by the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS).
