Laos, Vietnam inaugurate historical relic site

SON LA (Viet Nam News) -- A Vietnam-Laos revolutionary historical relic site was inaugurated in the north-western province of Son La on Thursday in the presence of Chairwoman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Nguyen Th? Kim Ngan and her Lao counterpart Ms Pany Yathotou.

President of the Lao National Assembly, Ms Pany Yathotou hailed the site's inauguration as a significant event to celebrate the 55th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties between the countries (September 5, 1962) and the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Co-operation (July 18, 1977).

Ms Pany thanked the Vietnamese Party, State and people for their timely and effective assistance for Laos in the cause of national liberation, defence and development.

She particularly thanked the authorities and people in Son La for supporting the Lao people in general and northern Lao provinces in particular over the past decades, and affirmed that Laos will continue to nurture its special and faithful relations with Vietnam.

Vietnamese NA Chairwoman Ngan said the relic site is a vivid demonstration of the solidarity between the two countries in general and Son La and northern Lao provinces in particular in the struggle against invaders to defend the country.

She said the relic site will be a valuable source of historical lessons to educate young generations in the tradition of patriotism and the special solidarity of the two countries.

The Vietnam-Laos revolutionary historical relic site in Lao Kho village, Phieng Khoai Commune, Yen Chau district, Son La province, was the place where Lao leader Kaysone Phomvihane chose to build a base for the Lao revolution against French colonialists.

The original historic relics preserved at the site include the old house of Trang Lao Kho and houses of the North Lao Vanguard Division. New construction works include a monument dedicated to Vietnam-Laos friendship and an exhibition house displaying photos, documents and objects on the bilateral amity.

Son La provincial People's Committee invested VN–54 billion (US$2.3 million) in the construction of the site.
